CREATING ENERGY BY WEARING A LOAD-REDUCING BACKPACK

A research team at Tsinghua University has developed the prototype of a load-reducing backpack that makes loads feel 20% lighter and uses energy from the wearer’s movements to power small electronic devices. Specifically, the researchers built two elastomers into the backpack to reduce its impact on wearers while they walk. The elastomers also use the generated energy to power a triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) which converts the mechanical energy into electricity.
