Since 2015, scientists have known that neutrinos possess mass, and in 2017, experimental researchers proved that this mass can be converted into electricity. Currently capable of powering low-load devices, such as sensors and LEDs, neutrinovoltaic electricity will soon power devices of all shapes and sizes.
Bridging the gap between the limited capacity of neutrino power and the demand of modern electronic devices will be accomplished with the help of intelligent power management. Devices that require less electricity will be the best-served by neutrinovoltaic electricity, and in time, neutrino energy will entirely eliminate the need for batteries and conventional AC power sources.
Not only is ample electricity increasingly vital to the continuation of human civilization, but our electronic devices are becoming more numerous and complex. While electronics become more energy-efficient every year, they’re also tasked with increasingly intensive tasks.
Doorbells are now surveillance cameras as well as musical chimes that inform you when visitors arrive. Vacuum cleaners are now self-determining robots that map your home. Thermostats now think while they heat.
All of these devices require steady flows of electrical power, and many of them must remain connected to the internet at all times. Servicing these needs is difficult with conventional plug-in power grids and batteries, but neutrinovoltaic electricity will satisfy the needs of our ever-growing array of Internet of Things (IoT) devices without breaking a sweat.
Humanity is now so thoroughly dependent on electricity that some scholars suggest we’ve entered the age of Homo electricus, the electric man. With the great freedom that Homo electricus has won, however, also come heavy shackles.
Now, more than ever, the human race is controlled by those who control the power supply, and fossil fuel power is centralized and dispersed using a model that places maximizing profits as its highest goal. Decentralized and powered by the endless flood of invisible radiation that permeates the universe, neutrinovoltaic power will revolutionize society, ushering in an age of global freedom.
