Simple devices made of bacterial spores, glue, and plastic may allow capturing energy from evaporating water. This video explains the motivation behind the work of ExtremeBio, a Columbia University research group, and the exciting process of scientifically driven innovation. The contents are based on “Scaling up nanoscale water-driven energy conversion into evaporation-driven engines and generators,” Nature Communications, 6:7346 (2015).
