Saudi Student Invents Device to Extract Energy from Raindrops

A Saudi mechanical engineering student at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals Fajr Al-Khulaifi was able to invent a device that extracts energy from raindrops, reported Akhbaar 24.

Al-Khulaifi explained the idea of ​​the device and its mechanism in her interview with Akhbaar 24, on the sidelines of the Future of Semiconductor Forum, which was held in Riyadh the past two days.

She registered in the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, where she met her supervisor who explained to her the field of semiconductors and how to develop businesses and projects in it.

Al-Khulaifi said that while she was on her way to meet her supervising doctor, it started raining in Riyadh. She was surprised because it was summer time. After learning that this rain came after the rain seeding program recently implemented in the Kingdom, she thought about ways to benefit from this rain.

This guided her to the idea of ​​designing a device that responds to raindrops. She worked with her supervisor to design the device according to the latest scientific procedures. She used a material that made her innovation extract energy from sunlight, raindrops and temperatures.

Al-Khulaifi exerted efforts to make the device flexible and work at all times of the year. It produces energy in sunny, hot and rainy times, meaning it can be used in all countries of the world.
