Rice University students have established a prototype to electricity transportable electronics with a shoe-mounted generator. Read through a lot more at http://information.rice.edu/2013/05/06/prototype-delivers-pedestrian-electricity/

    it will help mount trekkers or forest travelers a lot and it will help to create electricity on wet climate or in mountain..good invention…. 
    if u r able to use springs spring force can create more energy….hope so..

    you could adapt the mechanism, by utilising the concept of a bellows modified to propelle a gear into the charging unit. thus removeing the need for waste.?

    This is a prototype, a finished product would have it built into the sole ofcourse.

    Ask any EE student "how much electrical energy does the body of an invalid or sedate person produce at rest?"

    As a fellow Mechanical Engineer, I think this is really clever. I would really like to see something like this on the marked in a few years. Great idea for powering smartphones and other small electronics!

    Hahahah, you didn't get it; someone is walking, so he is charging the shoe's battery, suddenly he feels bad, he stops and connect his medical device to his shoes (that will be charged at this point) so his shoes recharge the device

    How could a person with artificial heart running out of battery still manages to walk? Just wondering….

    I think there exists a military boot that uses piezoelectric crystals to power small batteries. Good job though.
