Luminous Shoes / Lighting

Luminous Shoes

If there are no street lamps at night, it will be unsafe for people. Pedestrains can't see the road and drivers can't see passengers clearly, which may lead to traffic accidents.
Help to solve this problem. In the daytime, shoes reserve kinetic energy from the walking. At night, shoes transform the kinetic energy into light energy and shine automatically to illuminate the road. Meanwhile, it helps to remind the drivers and avoid accidents.
