MP,

You're right, of course, thanks for catching that. That would be cool.... a topic for a future arcticle, perhaps!

I also noticed that a diagram purporting to show the Linear Tech LTC3108 in an energy harvesting application instead showed the internal block diagram.  

The correct diagram is figure 14 in their very useful Journal Of Analog Innovation from October 2010: http://cds.linear.com/docs/en/lt-journal/LTJournal-V20N3-01-df-LTC3108_09-David_Salerno.pdf.

Oh well, back to playing with crayons......

First of all, there is typo: Seeback Effect should read as SEEBECK Effect! It would be really cool for one to see back (sorry, couldn't resist the pun!).

There are maturing technologies today for batteries that are renewable &  biodegradable (not necessarily edible!). Last year there was a seminar by a Stanford faculty showing an RF chip that did not have any I/O's for power and was competely based on energy harvesting including RF energy.
