Just like Nikola Tesla intended!
 
A ‘Battery-Free Computer’ Powered by Radio Waves #RFID
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/04/29/a-battery-free-computer-powered-by-radio-waves-rfid/

Engineered with the 16-bit MSP430 microcontroller, the ‘WISP’ (Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform) is a battery-less circuit that is powered by converting harvested radio waves into electricity. A project of the Sensor Systems Laboratory at the University of Washington, you can find documentation and publications about WISP here at the UW website.

But what if you could leave the battery out of the equation entirely? That’s just what the University of Washington’s Sensor Lab has done. Researchers there created the WISP, or Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform: a combination sensor and computing chip that doesn’t need a battery or a wired power source to operate. Instead, it sucks in radio waves emitted from a standard, off-the-shelf RFID reader—the same technology that retail shops use to deter shoplifters—and converts them into electricity.

Earth Day at the Kennedy Space Center was great today! The weather was great except for the wind that kept trying to blow everyone's tents over and handouts off the tables.

Sean in the back near the glass cases will gladly help you with all your rc hobby needs. He helped me with a drone project he's never heard of - Erle robotics PXFMini for raspberry pi zero. He googled it right there in the store and helped me pick out a remote and receiver that would work with it as well as some fpv gear. Give that guy a raise!

The first to put EV charging stations in the parking lot. Great seasonal events like the Food and Wine festival and the current one: the Flower and Garden festival. They even had a live butterfly room set up outside in a large tent!
