Researchers at the University of Bath say new “smart” clothing made with nylon fibers could turn gentle body movements into electricity and could keep our phones charged while on the move. Even the simplest movement, like swinging your arms, while wearing smart clothing would be enough to produce electricity.

If you want to read more (and it gets pretty technical and nerdy), the findings appear in the journal Advanced Functional Materials.
