Electricity generation that does not shock people means that electric current flows without encountering any resistance. This is possible in materials called superconductors. Superconductors are substances that reduce electrical resistance to zero below a certain temperature. This means that electric current can flow indefinitely in a superconducting circuit.

Non-impact electricity generation has significant potential to prevent energy loss and increase efficiency. For example, non-slamming electricity generation could eliminate losses in power transmission lines. It could also contribute to the development of technologies such as high-speed trains, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) devices and quantum computers.

The generation of shock-free electricity has not yet been fully realized. This is because superconducting materials operate at very low temperatures. This increases cooling costs and makes practical applications difficult. However, scientists are trying to find new materials that can exhibit superconductivity at room temperature.
