Nanoscale Triboelectric-Effect-Enabled Energy Conversion for Sustainably Powering Portable Electronics - Nano Letters (ACS Publications)
Basically, this is a squeezing based power generator, on the small scale (nanogenerator). Possibly very well adapted to immediate connection with nearby/embedded capacitors to collect energy as a first stage, before transferring to long term larger storage.

Innowattech - Energy Harvesting Systems
Interesting that they are targeting railways. I suppose it could potentially supply power to railway crossings, at least as an auxiliary source. It may be possible to power noise cancellation speakers...
