The simple fact of walking could be enough to recharge its iPod device with a new fabric developed by American researchers. The stored energy is made possible thanks to the semiconducting properties of zinc oxide nanowires, one thousand times smaller than a human hair. The wires are formed in pairs to create a brush effect. One of the fibers is coated with a fine layer of gold, which is a conductor and used as an electrode. So, by walking, the person generates a current thanks to its movement. His mechanical motion is transformed into electricity.
