How Much Electricity Do a Human Generate?

When I was a child, I saw "Matrix" and was surprised by the background.
In the movie, people are sleeping in cradles to generate electricity for machine creatures.
From the knowledge, I misunderstood that human body could generate electric power:D

Through studying biology, I understood it is partly true.
We can take advantage of the static electricity on out skin.
Touch buttons of some home electrics and touch panels are good examples.
On the other hand, it is impossible to generate electricity as human did in the movie.
The power is too weak to move anything.
If I were able to generate electricity like electric eel, I wouldn't have to recharge my cellphone outside any more.
In some fictions, it is an orthodox scene that heroes move machines generating the necessary electricity using aero bikes.
In real, however, it is impossible because the electricity that human can generate is too small.
Nowadays, many universities and companies are working to renovate these technologies mainly for the people living in rural areas, and for emergency.

I am looking forward to seeing the new world without the concern of electricity.
