Weak Signal's description 
Small wearable electronic devices such as watches or portable MP3 players can be already powered by body heat. Thermoelectric materials might also be implemented in energy-intensive application fields, which are charactarised by high losses of energy due to unused heat emissions, particularly in cars or industrial machines.
