Nanotubes...

    Its been a while since carbon nano-tubes were somewhat proven to be able to produce electricity from heat..

    And i've yet to hear someone making a mod that transforms excess body heat to electricity for mods.. 
    And/or 4d printed/produced nano tube mods?
    So, why not? Whats the hold-up and/or limitation?

    Can you link an article/paper about nanotubes producing electricity from heat? Thanks

    (there are lots more, but no application has appeared, so im wondering why?)

    Edit: Tripped on (http://news.mit.edu/2010/nanotube-channels-0910)  -which also has alot of potential for biohacking...

    @chironex has been messing with nanotubes from what I remember
  • chironexchironex November 2016
    Yup, been working on different ways to grow them. I hadn't actually seen this particular use for them, but I have been working on ways to harvest heat for electricity in an implant setting. It'll be a while till it's ready though. That said, during exosphere in january, we'll be exploring a few different ways to do this (heat to electricity) and we'll be growing nanotubes for a variety of things. So if you want to experiment with all that, that'd be the place to do it.

    I would SO want, but cant most likely. :(
    Any articles you'd recommend if i'd like to try on my own?
    (I myself am after the actuator parts)

    Check out his videos he goes over how to make them. It's on YouTube under

    The thought emporium.

    I only show my crude attempts, not a great way of making them. If you really wanna learn about this sort of stuff, you'll want to read up on chemical vapour deposition.
