Swiss researchers have invented a small three-phase motor that may be used as the power-source for a new breed of wristwatches. These watches could then operate as GPS units, app devices or mobile phones. These are activities that normally require quite a bit of energy, and can be costly and overbearing, but this micro-electromechanical system can be more than enough.
At Lausanne’s Swiss Federal Institute, researchers have invented this small motor, which is said to put out over three times the energy as that of a typical motor.
