15 year old, Angelo Casimiro, has invented a device that charges your phone as you walk.

With these phone charging shoes, when the wearer jumps, runs or walks, the pressure to a pair of discs inside the shoes produces energy.

This energy can then be used to charge your phone or any other device via USB port.

This invention was aimed at people who are constantly on the go or who live in remote areas with no regular access to electricity.

However, the shoes require a lot of movement to completely charge most devices. An estimated 8 hours of running to charge a lithium-ion battery and 2 hours of playing basketball to give the average cell phone about 10 minutes of charge.

There is still a lot of room for Angelo to improve his device, and he has entered his invention in the “Global Online Science and Technology Competition” of the 2014 Google Science Fair in the hope to do just that!
