Scientists from the University of Limerick recently published their research revealing that a protein produced by both birds and mammals is able to undergo piezoelectricity to produce energy equivalent to that of quartz. Piezoelectricity is the process of creating energy by applying pressure, and quartz is the standard-bearer of the capability. Wood, bone and tendon are other materials able to produce electricity in the same way, and the process is used in devices ranging from ocean sonar machines to mobile phone vibrators. The finding that mammalian milk, saliva and tears, and the egg whites of birds, are also capable of…
