What if we could consciously choose vacations where we use our bodies as kinetic tools to give host communities power? This could be the future of a whole new kind of ecotourism. Instead of travelling to natural environments to support conservation efforts, the kinetic tourist could vacation in urban spaces using new technology to leave powerful […]
Tyler had it all in place: first row tickets to see Emma’s favourite group and a new electric car to take her there. He couldn’t lose…until he ran out of power, 20 blocks from the concert hall. If only he’d remembered to charge at lunchtime… or found a way to create […]
The future of kinetic energy harvesting technology is bright. Experts think it will help open the door to a range of technological innovations that will be powered, not by batteries, but by the world around them. Our bodies’ everyday movements may soon power electronic sensors, medical implants, or our smartwatch. What many people don’t realize […]
Powering Canada’s Kinetic Energy Solutions We’ve all heard of the Canadarm, the pacemaker and IMAX films but what about Canadian kinetic energy innovations, such as a Peddle-powered monorail, the PowerWalk© charger or the SeeHorse equestrian wearable? To celebrate Canada Day, we’ve been working at BPM Land to uncover homegrown teams advancing cool body power movement solutions to […]
The day I saw this video for the first time I love it. When you see this ad, you immediately get it. No need to spend lots of time explaining. Visuals do so much to convey ideas. A great mainstream way of leveraging kinetic energy. What did you think?
One of the things we like to look at is wearable technology and how we may able to use that in our quest to harness kinetic energy. Have a look at Mashable’s coverage
You guessed it – we’re fans of products that leverage kinetic energy in one form or another. The intent here is not to endorse this product, but rather to show what companies, communities and individuals are working on, in this emerging trend that is leveraging human energy to help with actual needs we have. Perhaps […]
Part of Shell’s Make The Future program, which aims to inspire young scientists and engineers of the future, and hailed as the first of its kind, the Morro da Mineira project saw 200 energy harvesting Pavegen tiles being installed underneath newly-laid AstroTurf of the redeveloped community pitch. A number of PV panels were also positioned […]
