Some days we’re on our feet from morning until night without a break.

Energy we could be using, according to a 14-year-old teenager from Texas. His invention captures energy generated from walking, which can then be used to charge mobile devices.

He developed an insert which can be placed inside shoe soles thanks to zipper technology. Next he installed a generator which absorbs kinetic energy and transfers it by cable to a small external battery on the shoe.

The shoes are still light and the charging device is always there. For him, the shoes would be particularly suitable for playing tennis.

Generating electricity through sweat is nothing new. Humans as a source of energy.

Let’s run with it!
