Scientists Are Harnessing The Power Of Evaporation To Generate Energy

This device is the brainchild of the minds at Columbia University's Sahin Laboratory. The lab is run by Dr. Ozgur Sahin, a professor and recipient of many prestigious awards. While still a student, Sahin won the grand prize at the Collegiate Inventors Competition for a nanoscale microscope that can visualize the mechanical properties of molecules and cells. He received fellowships from both Harvard and the David & Lucile Packard Foundation. His research has also been officially recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy and National Institutes of Health.
This new piece of technology might not do much now, but the scientists behind it think it has great potential. Given who led the research, it's fair to say they're likely right.
