Team Guide Dog was created by Taylor Gruey, Kristin Kosak, Justin Steele, and Kevin Vees to create a viable replacement to batteries. Basic batteries often need to be changed and can create a strain on the environment as well as our wallets. We intend to create a “battery pack” that can be used anywhere typical AA batteries are found. This product will essentially be a DC power supply built into a mold of two AA batteries using RF (radio frequency) harvesting to power the users desired device. Because the product is running off of RF harvesting the product will never have to be replaced, and as long as the device is within range of the transmitting antenna the device will have power.
