Could you be the key to solving the energy crisis?
As humans we are literally powerful beings. Could we design a future where our bodies become a source of electrical power of which to drive our technology? Can we design car seats, steering wheels, floor boards ect to capture any spent or wasted energy produced by our bodies through heat, movement, friction, electrostatic charge and so on? Could it then be incorporated into the various public transportation systems of the world? What about clothing designed to power mobile devices on the go and contribute to the grid when at rest? What about our homes and office builds? Think about the potential of public gathering places. The gym would be a good start. We could even develop a monetary compensation program to encourage people to get and stay fit which would in turn help with obesity and poverty. Not to mention the cost savings of a home gym which could supplement your electric bill. Are we walking talking power plants? I believe the human element is underutilized and often overlooked. If we wish to empower ourselves both as individuals and as a community through technology shouldn't we also be willing to power it both as individuals and as a community? What are your thoughts?
