Soon, You’ll Be Able To Create Your Own Energy

You know how your feet get tired when you walk a lot? Well, all that pounding might soon be used to generate electricity. Engineers calculated the amount of energy that the 34,000 travelers who pass through the Victoria Underground station in London generate every hour, and they say it’s enough to power 6,500 light bulbs if underground generators were installed. These yet-to-be-produced generators could be put into any place that has high foot traffic, as well as on roads and beneath railroad lines. While the technology is still in its infancy, similar mini-generators were tested by the American military recently. Do you think walking in flats or heels would generate more electricity?
