    Powerful Digits: Remote Control Powered by Your Fingers








    If your household is like most others, you’ve probably got a handful
    of remote controls wandering around. They may not be as guilty of
    battery-hoggery as, say, digital cameras, but when they do run out it’s
    always at the most inconvenient moment (like when you’ve just sat down
    with a beer and a bowl of chips, planning to switch back and forth
    between two important games). Maybe in the future, you won’t have to
    worry about batteries for your remote controls at all.

    NEC and Soundpower are developing a battery-free remote
    that works with piezoelectric sensors to power all of your
    channel-surfing needs. The movement and pressure of your fingers will
    provide enough of a charge for the device to perform rudimentary
    functions: channel changing, volume up/down, and turning the TV off and
    on. The two companies are working together on the remote and plan to
    have it ready for manufacturers by 2011.
