SolePower creates self-charging wearables that capture wasted energy from human motion. SolePower smart work boots ("SmartBoots") collect motion and location data, providing industrial workforces with actionable insights to increase efficiency and reduce accidents. At the core is a patented kinetic charger that generates power every step. SolePower won a Popular Science Invention of the Year award for an energy harvesting insole. The team completed two contracts for the development of energy harvesting footwear in partnership with the US Army. SolePower is based in Pittsburgh, PA.
