Shiny Step / Self Generating Slipper

Shiny Step
Shiny Step

There are many people in Africa and refugee countries who suffer from very little shoe supply and poor power supply. I designed Self Generating Slipper to solve these problems at once. While walking, the battery is charged with electricity and can be used as a light source when user needs it.

When the user walks or runs, the pressure on the piezoelectric element in the soles is converted to electrical energy to charge the battery.
