People walks, on average 7,000 steps on daily basis. Did you know that a day-worth of walk can generate enough energy to power your smartphone and flashlight?
15 years old tech prodigy Angelo Casimiro from the Philippines creates a potentially life-changing energy source from an unthinkable item: Your shoes.
Okay, we have seen electricity generated floor panels. But shoes? I never heard of anything like it.
Let Angelo explain why this project rocks:
Super. Cool. And it’s not only his electricity-generating smart shoes; his other projects are pretty cool.
Solving people’s problem is the best a startup can do. That’s why tech inventions – such as the smartphones – made billions. For sociopreneurs, tech can help solving third world’s problems.
When a brave company takes on the electricity-generating smart shoes project and turn it into real products, I think the company will change people’s life, especially on regions with limited electricity coverage.
Angelo entered his invention to 2014 Google Science Fair. Fingers crossed!
What do you think of Angelo’s invention? Can it be turned into a mainstream product people actually want to buy?
