from Futurity.org:

Mini-generators could eventually produce enough electricity from random, ambient vibrations to power a wristwatch, pacemaker, or wireless sensor.

The energy-harvesting devices are highly efficient at providing renewable electrical power from arbitrary, non-periodic vibrations—a byproduct of traffic driving on bridges, machinery operating in factories, and humans moving their limbs, for example.
