SolePower: Autonomous Energy Generation

This proposal was a collaboration between Chris Clavio (myself) and Ruben Olguin and was submitted to the Prix Ars Electronica [The Next Idea] competition for judgement by a jury. If selected the proposal will be realized and installed at the 2013 Ars Electronica Festival.

This electronic arts project incorporates engineering, computer science, and creativity with the intention of creating a practical survival solution in tandem with a social dialogue about the way we generate, access, and transport electricity. The technology, at its root, integrates piezoelectric circuits into the sole of a shoe to generate electricity, which can then be used to charge mobile devices.
