Can you turn Kinetic Energy from a speeding bullet into electricity?

Like for example, In the film "Black Panther" The metal Vibrainium can store Kinetic Energy in the suit to be used later, Could we somehow capture Kinetic energy from a speeding bullet and turn it into (let's say) Electricity to power something? Picture for example on how his suit stores Kinetic energy.

    On the input shaft of a small generator, attach a paddle wheel whose paddles are made of kevlar.  Fire bullets at the paddles.  It's an incredibly inefficient way to produce electricity, and the paddles won't last very long, but it should work in principle.  As long as you can turn the generator, you'll produce electricity.
