An alternative power source harnesses kinetic energy.

Researchers are increasingly looking to build systems that harness energy from vibrations, as PSFK had reported earlier this year. Now, a Japanese electronics firm, Brother Industries, has developed Vibration Energy Cells that generate power after a vigorous shake. These cells are embedded with a coil, magnet and condenser to charge electricity and can be used to power any common battery powered device.
