THE VITRUVIAN ENERGY PROJECT
Investigating Wearables that Harvest, Convert & Store Energy.
Électricité de France + Institute Without Boundaries I December 4-5 2014
A behind-the-scenes look at what a research charrette is and how designers, artists and engineers can come together to create the wearables of the future.
The Vitruvian Energy Project
Vitruvian energy transforms human body activities (energy) into electric energy by using different kinds of technologies (energy harvesters). The law of energy states that “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed” but it can be converted from one form to another. According to the law of energy conversion, this project aimed to convert this energy into electricity and store it. The most common human activities, such as walking, biking, writing, opening a door or simply just moving, produce free energy
