[CC] Electronic harvester

2

A German digital media student  had created a devise that can catch electronic energy from thin air.

We are sourrounded by electromagnetic fields which we are producing for information transfer or as a byproduct. Many of those fields are very capacitive and carry more energy than requiered. The redundant energy can be harvested with coils and high frequency diodes. Accordingly to this I built special harvesting devices that are able to tap into several electromagnetic fields to exploit them. The energy is getting stored in an usual battery. So you can for example gain energy from the power supply of a coffee machine, a cell phone or the catenary of a train by holding the harvester directly into the electromagnetic field whose strenght is indicated by a LED on the top of the harvester. Depending on the strenght of the field it is possible to charge a small battery within one day. The system is meant to be an option for granting access to already existing but unheeded energy sources. By exploring these sources it can create a new awareness of the invisible electromagnetic spaces.

Gravity Light

GravityLight

GravityLight is a revolutionary new approach to storing energy and creating illumination. It takes only 3 seconds to lift the weight which powers GravityLight, creating 30 minutes of light on its descent.This can light up 1.5 billion people that do not have electricity in their home. Contribute to GravityLight: lighting for developing countries, visit here .

The brunch

001 | A serie of post-functional products

The Brunch is a series of consumer products that celebrate the mundane. Bread Slicer facilitates even, uniform, precision – cuts. Toaster brings knowledge, skill and anticipation to the toasting of a slice of bread, set angle and force to exactly hit your plate. Cutlery perfectly aligned on Placemat is rendered invisible, the Holy Grail of table placement. Teapot records the height one is able to pour tea from. Milk and Sugar allow for meticulous taste.

002 |12.3 mm , tool for precise bread slicing

003 | 42˚ , 5.2 N , set angle and force to exactly hit your plate

004 | 67.4 cm, teapot records the height you are able to poor tea from
