After testing a large number of materials including aluminium foils and Teflon, the researchers found that silicone produces more charge than any other material.shoes ADIDAS women SNEAKERS BIANCO PU B44676,.

The device can also send signals, indicating whether a person is moving. It can tell when a person is walking, running, jumping or marching, they said. The team used 3D printing to design the device, which has a layer of silicone and an electrode to capture the charge. The researchers believe the deviceAdidas CC Fresh 2W Women's Running shoes,.
