Scientists have designed a first-of-its-kind 3D-printed device that can produce electricity from falling snow. The device designed by researchersNike Mamba Rage EP Kobe Bryant Black Red Men Basketball shoes Sneaker 908974-060,.

After testing a large number of materials including aluminium foils and Teflon, the researchers found that silicone produces more charge than any other material.New Balance Mens Trainers X90 White Casual Lace Up Sport Running shoes,.

The device can also send signals, indicating whether a person is moving. It can tell when a person is walking, running, jumping or marching, they said. The team used 3D printing to design the device, which has a layer of silicone and an electrode to capture the charge.
