Prototype 3 in action: the Go Kin device generates electricity through the motion of walking. It’s compact and lightweight, so it fits in the bottom of a specially designed day pack or fanny pack. Two retractable cords extend from the bottom of the pack to hook on the tabs at the back of your running shoes or hiking books. Each time you take a step, the cords engage gears and motors in the Go Kin, creating electricity to power your cell phone, tablet, handheld GPS or batteries.
