New nano-generator charges gadgets as you walk

Washington, January 3 : A new nano-generator has been designed to convert movement from walking into electricity.


Zhong Lin Wang and colleagues at the Georgia Institute of Technology have found a way to generate electricity by bringing two differently charged surfaces into contact, then separating them, New Scientist reported.

The new technology uses the triboelectric effect, the same process that causes static electricity shocks.

While testing, the 2 kilogram backpack generated over 1 watt of power during walking, which is sufficient to run 40 LEDs simultaneously.
