According to a recently published research study in the journal ACS Nano, researchers have devised a technology that harnesses your body's natural movements and channels them into an electric stimulation device that may grow human hair. The wearable electronic stimulation device gets charged with the body's natural motions that occur with daily activity This device [...]
