Knee Mounted Generator

The idea behind this project is to power a cell phone or other small electronic device just by walking. Using the motion of a person's leg as they take a step, we are working on capturing the energy to charge up a battery. Our idea is to have a brace on the person's knee that has a small generator that gets power from their stride so that they can charge up their phone by walking around.
