Another reason to get up and walk could be a new way to charge your cell phone.

It’s an invention by four students at Rice University.

A walking powered cell phone charger.

The new pedi-power shoes distribute the force from across the bottom of the shoe through wires to a belt-mounted battery pack.

That's where you would plug in your phone.

This means no matter where you are, if you're wearing these shoes you can charge your cell phone.
