Faradays law wattage/voltage question?

    faradays law,,, wattage/voltage question?

    hi, im an industrial design major and am working on a project for a shoe. the shoe incorporates faraday's law of magnetic induction so that while you run, a magnet is going back and forth and powering a capacitor. my question is, how might i be able to come up with some rough/general numbers of how much power i could create with a smaller magnet, and would it be enough to take the battery/capacitor out of the shoe and plug into a phone or ipod to power it up? any info or websites i could visit would be greatly appreciated...

    You should ask your technical staff or hire one if don't have one.
    I do not feel making free engineering computations to be used in a commercial product.
