When the IoT was still in its infancy and LPWAN networks were only in development phase I was thrilled with wast potential possibilities that a long-range battery powered devices can bring us i.e. to put any type of sensor everywhere.
Now I have read an interesting article about the chip with such low power needs combines with energy harvesting tech that doesn’t need batteries at all. Actually, there are two options, one working without battery at all, and the other extending the life of batteries. This can be a major step forward to reduce operational expenses.
The technology apparently works only for Bluetooth 5 and I would love to see it working on LoRaWAN.
The companies that made it possible are Atmosic and SMK Electronics Corporation.

This blog is focused on simplifying and promoting the complex but also very interesting world of IoT, 5G, networking and digitalization.
Blog’s aim is to give short, interesting and useful information and content to business people and everyone interested in IoT/5G business development, entrepreneurship and practical use cases.
The blog presents concepts and analyses, use cases, product comparisons, news roundups, interviews, educational videos, tutorials, reports and whitepapers.
If you need a machine and don’t buy it, then you will ultimately find that you have paid for it and don’t have it.
Time isn't a commodity, something you pass around like a cake. Time is the substance of life. When anyone asks you to give your time, they're really asking for a chunk of your life.
