Harnessing human energy to charge our gadgets wirelessly while wearing them? Yes please!

Charging while on the go, instead of being tethered to a power plug?

We could soon be harnessing the movements of our bodies in order to charge electronic gadgets, after a team of researchers developed a concept for the potentially groundbreaking technology, the website wareable.com has reported.

A collaborative effort by groups at both the University of Buffalo and the Chinese Academy of Science has resulted in the development of a wearable metallic tab that's able to pick up on body movements and generate electricity. Such a device would mean that wearers would be able to convert everyday energy expenditure into power for their smart devices.
