Power Generating shocks

MIT has been working on building Power Generating shocks that can be used to improve fuel efficiency of the vehicles. I've been waiting for this kind of thing for years.

A while ago someone invented a similar thing for shoes that could recharge a battery. Anything and anywhere that there is a natural bouncing motion we can attach a device to generate electricity.

Maybe next is a smaller shock absorber for the drivers seat, harnessing the power of the driver bouncing?
