Leather and carbon
« on: December 14, 2017, 08:40:29 AM »
Hi i just now found a piece of leather and i tried to put one dmm clip on the piece of leather and the other on a carbon rod and didnt think it would going to generate anything, but to my amazedment it generated one 5th of a volt.

I was thinking about how all living things on earth pick up electricity from the air, and that was why i wanted to try the leather together with carbon becouse C is a very basic compound that we are all based on.

I just thought that someone would be interested in this, and maybe some other organic "electrodes" (like bone for example) could also be used, i dont know. :)

Certain carbon structures respond to electric fields.
Nano carbons placed in an electric field will form into some of these.
Graphite/graphene are only a small part of the list.

All sort of technology can be produced using carbon
And other organic compounds.

Skin: in particular the Dermus (corium) or ‘middle layer’ of
skins from mammals and birds::

Among the connective/conductive fibers
The dermus contains photoreceptors, mechanoreceptors, thermoreceptors,
and electroreceptors.
Making flesh or hide suitable for solar cells, thermoelectric converters,
vibratory-mechanical to electric converters, batteries, and many components
we generally make out of silicon or germanium today.

Dermus is likely to become the primary construction resource (after nanocarbon)
of Organic Electronics.

Thicker hides like those found in the larger mammals have higher performance and
tolerances than that of smaller creatures.

On top of that, “leather” usually contains large amounts of salts.
Giving leather batteries their own built-in electrolyte.
The salt will have to be replenished for continuous operation or other electrolytes used.

Living Dermus provides a higher level of potential advancement in organic technology
And stem-cell research pages the way to ‘growing’ our own devices, components, or
even organic power sources.
