Heels that produce and store green energy by walking

Like most people these days, I dread the moment I’m outdoors, my phone buzzes and a popup with the most horrifying message known to human kind appears: "10% of battery remaining". That's why I created an innovation that has the potential to make this problem history.

I created heeled shoes that produce and store green energy by walking to charge your phone with while resting. The mechanism inside the shoe is based on the workings of an old-fashioned dyno torch. To use a dyno torch you have to repeatedly squeze it. While walking the heels of your feet repeatedly touch the ground. This movement repeatedly adds pressure to the surface under the heels of your feet. That's why I created a dyno-torch-like mechanism inside the heel part of the heeled shoes. The mechanism produces energy by making the gears inside the dyno-torch-like mechanism spin everytime the heels of your feet put pressure on the sole of the heeled shoes; making the motor connected to these gears spin as well.

The produced energy is then stored inside a power bank. The powerbank can be used to charge your phone with while resting.
