14-02-2014
Recently, the European Commission has posted the MEMO/14/106 with intriguing title "8 things you didn't know about Electronics". The note reported advanced nano-electronics and smart systems referring to novel results of selected FP7 projects. Among presented state of the art R&D projects, the EC note described recent e-BRAINS project results:
 
"Energy scavenging technologies will soon allow us to build pacemakers powered by the heartbeat itself, discarding batteries andextending their in-body usage to tens of years. The e-BRAINS project develops modules the size of a capsule (2-3 cm) which, when implanted in a human heart convert some of the heart's own mechanical movement into power. This means patient no longer needs to be operated on every few years to change the pacemaker's batteries."
