Harvesting Rain Power Via Piezoelectric Landing Pads]] - Scientists from CEA/Leti-Minatec in France have developed a system that recovers the vibration energy from raindrops falling on a piezoelectric structure. The system works with raindrops ranging in diameter from 1 to 5 mm. Simulations show that it's possible to recover up to 12 milliwatts from one of the larger "downpour" drops.

There was an error working with the wiki: Code wrote:
There are many areas with a lot more vibration than gained from raindrops. How about:
1. Railroad tracks.
2. Inside vehicles, including trains and trucks.Possibly mounted on the wheels.
3. A wind powered vibration machine. Maybe built like a tree. Possibly attached to a windmill.
6. Airplane engines.
7. A special vibration system designed to be mounted on roofs.
