Backpack power generator that recovers walking energy of a sort by attaching ratcheting cables to the back of your shoes. Which means this backpack is effectively trying to trip you by pulling your feet out from under you, if it pulls too hard. Not suitable for hiking through thick underbrush. I wonder how annoying the cable tension is on walking gait/posture. That said, it seems to have pretty good performance as it's effectively using leg extension for power (much like a land rowing machine)

Nice part of this is that it basically is a submerged buoy actuated seawater pump, sending high pressure seawater ashore to a turbine station on land, keeping the electrical bits dry. Water pressure can be used directly for desalination as well.
