Electricity-Generating Walking Device
Marines with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion test out the PowerWalk, just one exhibit of energy saving gear at Camp Pendleton's ExFOB14. The PowerWalk harnesses energy as the user walks, charging batteries and other devices. The PowerWalk may look like a brace, but reviews showed it actually made walking less of a chore while not restricting movement. Marines tested the gear and offered feedback to developers. The gear will be improved for further testing and possible integration into the Marine Corps' energy saving arsenal. Video by: Cpl. Clayton Filipowicz.
