Energy Harvesting in Shoes for Small Devices

Walking is a Source of Energy that can be Harvested to Power LEDs or Wearables. It may one day Recharge your Smartphone or tablet. Just start running when the Battery goes low on your Phone.

Here is the first page that will interest you – Parasitic Power Shoes Project

Energy Harvesting in Shoes for Small Devices

“environmental energy sources can begin to replace batteries in certain wearable subsystems. In this spirit, this effort has examined devices that can be built into a shoe, (where excess energy is readily harvested) and used for generating electrical power “parasitically” while walking.”

Piezoelectric Energy Scavenging In Shoes

Goal: To develop a rugged piezoelectric shoe insert and complementary conditioning electronics for unobtrusive, parasitic harvesting of the compression energy normally lost while walking
