Scientists have designed a first-of-its-kind 3D-printed device that can produce electricity from falling snow. The device designed by researchersAdidas Damian Lillard 3 Womens Basketball shoes Black White BW0536 7, 8, 9.5,.

After testing a large number of materials including aluminium foils and Teflon, the researchers found that silicone produces more charge than any other material.Adidas PureBoost GO Men's shoes Carbon Grey Black Size 10.5 AH2319 HURRy,.

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.
