+ - Discovery of a 'spin battery' effect->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Researchers at the University of Miami and at the Universities of Tokyo and Tohoku, Japan have discovered a spin battery effect. Basically the ability to store energy into the magnetic spin of a material and to later extra that energy as electricity, without a chemical reaction. This is a potentially "game changing" discovery that could affect battery and other technologies. The researchers have built an actual device has a diameter about that of a human hair that is uses to demonstrate the effect.
