The triboelectric effect has been known since ancient times, but the tools for understanding and applying it have only become available recently due to the advent of nanotechnology.
However, analysts at IDTechEx have appraised the technology and potential commercialisation of triboelectrics, a new form of energy harvesting based on similar materials and think there is potential for partnerships.

The technology uses Triboelectric Nanogenerators (TENGs),
A team of researchers with the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology in China has developed what it is calling a skin-like triboelectric nanogenerator (STENG) that enables both biomechanical energy harvesting and tactile sensing.
According to Georgia Tech documents describing the technology, the concept relies upon Triboelectric Nano-generators capable of producing electrical power from "mechanical motion such as rotation, sliding or vibration ...
Watson XRF products are powered by an innovative new X-ray technology that maximizes the performance and minimises the cost of generating X-rays by using the so-called Triboelectric Effect, a process similar to static electricity, to eliminate the industry's typical requirements for expensive, high voltage devices.
These systems are mainly operated by exploiting energy conversion mechanisms such as piezoelectric [1-3], electromagnetic [4-6], and triboelectric [7-10] effect.
