This is fascinating.  Researchers have developed a way to harvest energy generated from human walking.  This energy can then be used to power a variety of mobile electronic devices (such as smartphones, laptops, etc.).  I love reading about energy harvesting technology.  There is plenty of energy out there to power your portable electronics - you just have to look in the right places and develop the right technologies.  Bravo.
