New Fibers Mimic Electric Eels #WearableWednesday

Those electric eels you’ve seen on NatGeo have been an inspiration for scientists at Fudan University in Shanghai according to LiveScience. They’ve developed fibers that mimic the electrocytes in eels, but producing higher voltages.  Eels use their electrocytes in concert, while the new fibers use a series of capacitors. Here’s a description....
