Capturing Kinetic energy from human motion
Our PORTABLE WITT is a lightweight unit that can be positioned in the base of the backpack and could provide up to 10W of power for civilian and defence applications. The PORTABLE WITT uses human motion from walking to harness energy and convert it to useable electricity such as charging an iPhone. The unique selling point of this application is that the user is in control of their own power; the more they move the more energy they can generate. This unit replaces the need for carrying heavy batteries and can be lifesaving in remote locations.
There is tremendous potential for the WITT technology in the dismounted soldier backpack and other defence and homeland security applications.
