Clothing Power -- Getting a real charge out of your power suit
What if your power suit really did give you a charge? Researchers at UC Berkeley have created nanofibers that can convert simple body movements into electricity. The new technology could one day lead to smart clothes that could power hand-held electronics. So, your jogging suit could charge your Ipod while you were running, or even just walking. See how they did it in this episode of "Innovation Nation" with Miles O'Brien.
