Aha. I see. Make light by hiding a generator on the hell of the shoe. Sure, Maxwell Smart, sure. Missed it by that much, chief. Now this is the real deal: convert your breathing power into energy. http://www.instructables.com/id/EE9ZG6JF1OABQAQ/ i'm not making this up. Go see for yourself. Worst. Invention. Ever.

Only thing sillier than this micro-pendulum in the heel is the $28 Million the Army has spent trying to develop soldier heel power. Result is 4" heels and a squashy walk: just the thing for the ambush or minefield. But a million kids have benefitted.. with twinkling shoes.
