Scientists have designed a first-of-its-kind 3D-printed device that can produce electricity from falling snow. The device designed by researchersNike Air Jordan Retro 1 Hi Silver 25th Anniversary Grey Silver 396009 001Sz 10.5,.

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 460v2 Running shoes Mens 11.5 Wide 4E Sneaker Athletic M460LG2,.

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.
