Kinetic energy is the energy of motion and can therefore be found in every object that moves. In everyday life, we are surrounded by it: be it people strolling through the streets or an airplane flying in the sky. The process of converting kinetic energy into electrical energy is not a new one.
Wind turbines, for instance, generate electricity by transforming the kinetic energy of the wind. While this is an already well-known energy source in field of renewables, capturing energy from human movement is a newer approach to generating sustainable energy. With the help of kinetic tiles, energy from footfall can be captured and converted into electricity.
