  • Cloud power Scientists have created a cloud device that can harvest clean electricity from the humidity in air. The fingernail-sized contraption, Air-gen, is made from a material filled with holes less than a thousandth of the width of a human hair. The nanopores make clean power by harvesting the energy from electrically-charged water in the air that passes through them. Essentially, the device harnesses the power in clouds that make lightning. Dr Jun Yao, the senior author from Massachusetts University, said: “What we’ve done is to create a human-built, small-scale cloud that produces electricity for us predictably and continuously so that we can harvest it.” The technique can be scaled up for use in numerous different environments.
