    Hello everyone, can anyone share their knowledge or insights regarding this project.
    Our project as already stated in the title is "Electricity Generation through Sitting." The main idea of our project is to convert natural body heat (release from sitting) and force exerted on a chair into electricity and store it in a battery for future use. We are planning to use thermoelectric module/peltier tile(?) and piezoelectric material in achieving this. But we are still unsure on how we will design our prototype.

    Please, spare some minutes and help us plan and understand our project better. Thanks in advance! :)

    Why not maximise energy harvesting by additionally provide a hole in the centre of the seat to collect wind power?

    A small turbine to convert the wind into electricity and then a small methane burner feeding a generator.

    Then there is sniffing, blinking, sneezing - all sources of energy going to waste whilst sitting.
