The design of the iShoe is not too complicated, but it did take the 11-year old a bit of time to perfect it. The iShoe comes with a slide-on heel that sports kinetic energy micro-springs and there is a detachable battery pack inside that will charge up as you move around. Ten minutes of walking in these shoes should be enough to charge up your mobile for an hour. All you need to do is walk around and when your gadget runs out of charge just replace the battery with the battery pack in the shoe.

Ryan Gramp, you are amazing.  I feel a bit better thinking our future may be in the hands of kids like this.

Kids are natural geniuses.

I wonder if he gets more than 12 minutes to eat lunch each day….
