WISP – RE-PROGRAMMABLE MICROCONTROLLER THAT RUNS ON ENERGY HARVESTED FROM RADIO WAVES

A new research initiative between the University of Washington’s Sensor Laband the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands has created a microprocessor that can power itself through stray radio waves and receive programmable updates in the same fashion. While the RISC-derived 16-bit microcontroller CPU is very weak compared to modern standards, it’s much more powerful than any other device that’s p ...
