Electricity Generated when Walking

Electricity Generator

Stomp your feet to generate electricity

The idea of underground generators for making electricity has been thought up by 2 students named James Graham and Thaddeus Jusczyk. The idea works by using small dynamos under the floor which when walked on the movement is converted to electricity. As can be expected, there isnt a huge amount of energy created by doing this, but just 1 step can power a 60 watt light bulb for a second. Mix this with thousands of people walking and you could generate a nice amount of energy that would save other sources.

No word yet on if this will go any where, but I do like the idea and by putting something like this in a busy city where there is lots of movement could help shave off a few % of the electricity needed to be generated from a power station.

Now they just need to put it in the roads too so that busy roads can also generate power.
