PA Students Create a Shoe Insole That Charges Your Phone While You Walk

We can land a man on the moon but still haven’t been able to invent a phone with infinite power.  That may be asking for too much but it’s definitely something we could all benefit from especially in this day and age of smartphone users being addicted to their phones.  Well for those that can’t get enough of social media, texting, or candy crush there is great news coming out of western PA.  A group of Carnegie Mellon students have created shoe insole that is able to charge cell phones while walking.

How does it work you ask? Well according the The SolePower EnSoles site, “A thin cable transports the generated power to the PowerPac (the external storage component) using a water resistant, detachable connector. The power generated while walking is stored in an external PowerPac. This PowerPac is waterproofed and can be placed inside of a fabric holster that integrates with the shoelaces to create a secure and comfortable attachment.”

In layman’s terms the insoles have two generators and the energy used while walking is stored in a battery pack attached on the shoe’s laces. In total the insoles can store up to 2 1/2 hours of battery life. Even better news is that the SolePower EnSoles are made to fit any type of shoe so there’s no obligation to purchase a certain type of footwear.

So when will this awesome invention hit the market?  Well there is no set date the insoles are still in production but the students behind the invention stated that they plan to release the SolePower EnSoles very soon.  Will you be purchasing it?
