Class 9 Student From West Bengal Invents Shoe That Generates Electricity, Know How it Works
Souvik Seth, a ninth-grade student from Barasat Depara, Chandannagar, Hooghly, has created a shoe that generates electricity while walking. This electricity can be used to charge mobile phones, GPS devices, and even cameras. Souvik's interest in electronics began when he observed his uncle working on electronics during his fifth-grade studies. He has already won several science display awards as a student of the English department at Chandannagar Kanailal School.
According to Souvik, the shoes can generate electricity when the wearer walks, and a 2000 mAh battery can be easily charged by walking one kilometer. Currently, the smart shoe system is designed externally, but Souvik plans to incorporate all the gadgets into the sole of the shoe within a month. However, he requires financial assistance from a shoe manufacturing company.
Souvik believes that his invention will revolutionize the shoe industry, particularly for travelers on trips or mountain climbing. He claims that the shoes come equipped with a GPS system, spy cameras, and are capable of generating electricity through kinetic energy, which makes them convenient and safe to use.
Moreover, Souvik says that the GPS system in the shoes is particularly helpful for children as it allows family members to track their location. Additionally, the shoes have spy cameras, which can be used to detect any suspicious activity without the suspect realizing that they are being monitored.
Souvik's father, Swaroop Seth, works in a jute mill, and his mother, Soma Seth, says that Souvik's interest in electronics began when he was in the fifth grade, watching his uncle work on Chinese Light electronics. Souvik fashioned his first invention out of discarded materials, a bicycle calling bell, before developing a spy suit with navigation and a camera.
Souvik hopes to pursue further studies in ITI and believes that his work will be worthwhile if a large company contacts him.
