Tiles High Foot-traffic, and High-energy Movement Into Power

Through use of energy generating tiles, human energy is turned into power.

"With Elizabeth Redmond's keen eye on contemporary issues, she strives to combine radical concepts on energy and sustainability with function and practicality. Studying content from physics to aesthetics, Elizabeth seeks to consider the social, technical, and ecological questions pertaining to each project she pursues. With this cross-disciplinary approach to design, the debate that follows every project is destined to become an integral part of her design process."

This is the age of "design". I'm old enough to have witnessed the explosion of desktop publishing, auto design, packaging design...and design for design's sexy and lofty role in consumer and IT applicatons.

Now those talents are being turned to energy. And Elizabeth Redmond is one of the new generation of energy designers.

Her designer's eye brought to her attention the most common form of human energy use -- walking.

"At rest, your body is emitting 100 watts of power. That is more than enough energy to power the computer on which this is written. Given this, imagine how much energy we are emitting while walking to work, running at the gym, or dancing at the club! It doesn’t take a genius to appreciate the thought of that energy doing something more for us than dissipating into the ground or environment… "

And her design skill is turning her keen observations and skill into practical applications with >POWERleap tiles.

Through use of energy generating tiles, people are constantly involved in the very activities that create the electricity they need.

What an inspiration! This design continues innovative approaches such as energy producing playground merry-go-rounds. We need more parks for our children (of all ages) to enjoy...and use productively!
