Harvesting Excess Man Made Energy

Albany NY designer, Manoocher Zarif is piloting a device that converts vibrations found in urban traffic into electricity.

The industrial design graduate came across the idea while he was experimenting with a Piezo device that converts pressure and movement into electricity, lighting up an LED lamp. He is in line for a JAmes Dyson award for his idea.

The 23 year old, who works at a billboard company, says his design turns urban excess man-made energy into power, for lighting, billboards, signs and acts as an off-grid source of electricity for urban areas.

While Manoocher has created a model, the harvester is at concept stage only. See it here:
