There is footwear, and then there is footwear. Researchers at InStep NanoPower are trying to some wind beneath your sails with their new electrowetted insoles. Wait, what is that? It’s cutting edge technology that takes the energy produced via your steps and turns it into energy you can use on other stuff.
This means powering your many gadgets just by the steps you were going to be taking anyways. Cool right? Once this technology is firmly in place it could mean we no longer have to constantly plug in our iPhones, portable gaming machines, mp3 players and all of our other favorites.
Of course, this is a new and untested technology. It is just in the concept stages for now but who knows, maybe one day putting your best foot forward could actually mean something.
