Cool Tech: Human motion powered battery charger

Fascinating research in harnessing human motion to create electric charges sufficient to power a phone charger.

I hope this can be taken a step further and placed in a motion based device such as a vehicle and you get a faster charger without connecting to an electric socket.

Take it even further, factories could use this idea to build larger electric generators based on their own equipments' various motion based actions to build regenerative power.

I think as a concept, this has potential to be a very good cogeneration concept from a humble phone charger device all the way to industrial strength regeneration.
