We are Nada, Catherine, Sequoia and Paige.
We are developing a new biomaterial that can generate electricity from the humidity in the air, using pili: the protein nanowires from Geobacter Sulfurreducens.
Our vision is of a radically sustainable energy future, where our power generation and our electronics are growable and compostable. Where our electronic devices have a new materiality, complex, textured, and perhaps even alive.
That’s the idea behind Electric Skin:
A Self-Powering Material,
Beautiful, Growable, Compostable.
