Shoe charger for mobile devices

Rajesh Adhikari, an ingenious 12th class Indian student has invented shoes that can charge your mobile devices any time you want. All you have to do is walk a mile and you are good to juice up your mobile device. The invention came as a result of heavy snow in the winters last year which left Nainital (hill-town) in Uttrakhand without any power for quite some days, disrupting life and leaving the kid bored with his phone out of power. This is when the idea of inventing a shoe that could charge his mobile came into light and he started working on it. In the end he made a functional version of a wearable shoe that has a small dynamo that charges up and produces 5V electricity as one walks or runs while wearing the shoe.
