Power-generating mat lets people produce electricity!


The power-generating mat is developed by Tokyo-based tech company Soundpower. This mat was placed right out Shibuya station in Tokyo’s Shibuya district, it is one of the most crowded areas in the world, particularly full with people due to Christmas.

This very special kind of mat is 45.5cm squared, made of piezoelectric material. The mat generates between 0.1 and 0.3W of electricity every time a person weighing 60kg steps on it twice. About 900,000 people pass by the area daily.
