Electromacostation, or electromechanics, is the use of heat to create mechanical vibrations in a building.
It’s been used to repair buildings, build cars, and even build the solar panels that power Tesla’s Model 3 electric car.
But while the technology has the potential to revolutionize the energy industry, many of the projects that are using it are going through a tough time.
The New York Times reports that “the vast majority” of these projects have either been abandoned or have failed, making it impossible to evaluate the long-term sustainability of these technologies.
A recent article in Wired highlighted a group of electrical engineers who have been using electromecha- anism to build a battery for their electric car, but the project is currently in development.
The team is using the same technology as the ones that made the Model S electric car a billion dollars in sales, but it has never been commercialized, according to Wired.
And because of this, it’s unclear if electromechanism will ever make it to mass production.
