static electricity through a phenomenon known as triboelectricity (or the triboelectric effect)

Researchers are using something called the triboelectric effect to create surprising amounts of electric power by touching two different materials together. This can provide a new way to power mobile devices such as smartphones by capturing the otherwise wasted energy from sources like walking, the wind blowing, vibration, or ocean waves. Beyond generating power, the technology could also provide a new self-powered sensor, allowing detection of vibrations, water leaks – or even rain…

Triboelectric Effect... This phenomenon creates significant amounts of electric power by simply rubbing or touching two different materials together. According to the inventor of this phenomenon, this discovery will offer a new way to power mobile devices by capturing the mechanical energy from walking vibration, passing cars or any multitude of sources.This phenomenon works in the following way:
