- Tekcapital has acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to a piezoelectric electro-mechanical device, from the University of Michigan with patents pending (US 2014/012690).

This device may be incorporated into footwear, apparel, sporting goods and recreational equipment to harvest the energy generated through vibrations.

Additionally, Tekcapital has acquired the exclusive worldwide licence to a patented (US 8,368,290) rectifier-free, energy harvester/battery-charger circuit from the Georgia Tech Research Corporation.

This technology conditions the AC (alternating current) from a piezoelectric transducer, such as that licensed from the University of Michigan, for the efficient conversion into DC (direct current).
