Tiny sensor could run for years harnessing energy from its environment

from Singularity Hub:

The University of Michigan has produced a miniature sensor that harnesses solar energy and could last for years without needing to be replaced.

Composed of a solar cell, processor, and battery, the tiny device is only 2.5×3.5×1mm in size – a thousand times smaller than a commercial version of its type.
