Question: Does piezoelectricity produce enough power for a wireless mouse?
Answer: Piezoelectricity produces energy based on the size, mechanical energy applied to it, and the particular type of piezoelectric material. If you used a large enough piezoelectric array such as covering a dance floor it would could produce enough energy if it was being danced on. However there is no material that produces enough energy that it could somehow be built into a wireless mouse and generate enough energy to power it by harnessing the user’s motion. This might be possible with some kind of extremely low power consumption mouse but nothing I can imagine. It would be possible to have it slowly charge a battery in the mouse but the additional power would be negligible.
