ABSTRACT: Biomechanical energy is a promising renewable energy source and, owing to the demand for portable and smart
device power sources, has attracted the attention of researchers in a wide range of disciplines. We present a smart puzzle
triboelectric nanogenerator (SP-TENG) based on the contact and separation mode between a surface-modified
polydimethylsiloxane film and a paper contact material. The SP-TENG exhibits a simple structure (thin and lightweight),
with an output voltage of 70 V and a current of 6.5 μA, which can drive a liquid crystal display at the press of a finger.
A systematic investigation of the SP-TENG demonstrated it to be a practical energy harvester with the potential to charge a
commercial capacitor and drive a liquid crystal display. The SP-TENG also acts as an instantaneous force sensor with detection
sensitivity of 2.605 μA kPa−1. We fabricated six SP-TENGs as puzzle pieces and formed a self-powered smart puzzle by
connecting it to a simple logic circuit. This approach improved a simple traditional puzzle, transforming it into an interactive
smart puzzle.
