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 Women's Adizero Ubersonic 3 Tennis shoes, Pink, Size 5.0,.

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.
