Fiber-based nanotechnology in clothing could harvest energy from physical movement

Nanotechnology researchers are developing the perfect complement to the power tie: a "power shirt" able to generate electricity to power small electronic devices for soldiers in the field, hikers and others whose physical motion could be harnessed and converted to electrical energy.

And you thought that knee-mounted generator was cool.

Okay, but is it water-proof?

I seriously doubt it. In fact, you probably get zapped when you perspire!
