Generate Power While Walking

Bob Edwards talks with inventor Trevor Baylis about his latest gadget, a battery charger that harnesses energy while you walk. The device is attached to shoes, and can be used to power a cell phone. Baylis will test out the invention on an upcoming 62-mile walk across the Namibian desert to raise money for land-mine awareness.
