QuantumDrive signed an exclusive license with Face International to use Face’s Evercell thermal energy harvesting devices in self-powered quartz watches. Able to provide continuous power to a quartz watch continuously, the quantum-technology-based devices eliminate the need for batteries. Evercell-powered quartz watches could be on the market as early as 2020.
Evercell energy harvesters are thin, passive-structure, semiconductor-based thermal energy devices that exploit principles of quantum physics to produce a small, continuous flow of electric power (enough to power a quartz watch, for example) in virtually any environment. It consumes no fuel, has no moving parts, contains no toxic materials, and requires no exposure to other stimuli, including motion, pressure, RF, or electromagnetic energy. In contrast to Evercell technology, conventional thermal energy harvesters require both significant thermal gradients and a bulky heatsink for operation.
