The PowerPot Concept by David Toledo transforms the heat from cooking directly into electricity with no moving components. This is done using any technology called thermoelectric power generation. Thermoelectric technologies was discovered inside early 1800’s, but discovered no consumer application in power generation as a result of the relatively high power wants of the devices inside use at the time. However, times get changed. Today, nearly everyone uses microelectronics-based devices as smart phones, mp3 players, GPS units, etc. which consume significantly less than 5 watts associated with power.
