Kinetic Charging Piezing Power-Dress


A great way to gather power is via kinetic energy. Why not recollect energy while we are already moving? Enter the Amanda Parkes’ and Adam Kumpf’s .
This dress uses piezoelectric material creates a voltage when it is deformed like bent or twisted. An integrated rectifier circuit connects the strips to capacitors which store electrical charge and feed the electrical power to the coin batteries disguised as buttons.
