The invention is a device to transport people.

Piezoelectric technology is still young and its potential uses are infinite. My invention provides the simultaneous harvesting and using of energy.

Following the concept used by the millipedes and starfish the system is designed to use many legs to distribute weight and propel the body forward and, at the same time, generate electricity for immediate reuse.

We have seen how floors are used to capture the energy generated by the footfalls of pedestrians, ZILLIPEDE uses hundreds of small piezoelectric devices on the soles of specially designed shoes to lift the person and move them forward (or backward) as they desire. As one set of piezoelectric devices lift, the ...
