Using Biomechanics as Clean Energy

Mentors Needed in Area of Engineering

This study focused on finding out if a humans bio-mechanics could be utilized to create a clean and renewable energy source. Our idea is a backpack that employs people’s energy that they create while walking to charge a mobile device.  The stretching of muscles in the gluteus maximus while walking would spin a generator, affectively creating electricity.
