Well this one is great,,,,thinking out of the box!! This is really what science should be focusing on. I dreamt about these things before that power themselves for years now... but as cool as all this is... I just want to buy one of those electric shoes in due time...not see it only at exhibits... because reading about it only makes me want it more!

Combine these technologies into comfortable shoes and there will be much wider adoption of the products. I love how technology is making our lives a lot easier, and hopefully will be sustainable environmentally. Abby - http://www.comfortablefoot.com

10W output?!? I highly doubt it, maybe 10mW...the whole human body requires 100W or so...getting 10Watts out would requires extreme hard work not just walking ;-)...Kris

Tom Krupenkin of InStep Nanopower claims a shoe power generator could be produced with a 10 watt output that could recharge your cell phones as you walk. Conventional electrowetting uses electrical charges to move liquid droplets to create screen displays. He reverses the process (reverse electrowetting) to generate power as the each step in the shoe pushes droplets past the electrodes. [Bloomberg Businessweek, Dec 5, 2011, page 50]

Both the cases of prototypes presented here in the article are very exceptional, the first prototype of controlling the fluid motion will be very much helpful in bio-medical applications. The event discussed in the article will be worth visiting as it not only talks about the paper but working technology is demonstrated in terms of prototypes.

With the progressive demise of my knee cartiledge, I welcome any device that adds some "spring" to my step. I suppose if it additionally provides a source of power for my increasingly needy phone, it'd be welcomed.

Very impressive developments...but they follwed on earlier similar work...what I was mostly surpised was the highest numbers of papers from Asia, kudos to KAIST...Kris

I'm puzzled that so much design effort is required to power a pedometer. My first pedometer powered itself (like a self winding clock) long before anyone discussed microcircuits. That swinging pendulum inside is just "asking" for something useful to do. I'd think that power could be extracted from shoe based generators (think of a hand crank radios with 100 pounds of weight being available at every step) for more substantial purposes. It seems the hardest part of the process would be the ergonomic design to ensure that the "springiness" of the shoes didn't cause unintended interference with walking.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
