The materials generate static as they rub together while the circuitry acts like a variable capacitor, storing up the electrical charge generated, reports New Scientist.

When it builds up to a certain level the circuitry discharges, powering the LEDs.

Post says he and his colleagues' aims is to create clothing that can power a personal computing device simply by harnessing the energy in the wearer's movements.
