Create Energy Stepping

This fancy little object goes by the name “Slide” and with it, you can generate energy walking up and down steps. By simply placing your hand upon the green and pushing it along the railing aside the stairs you’re walking on, you’ll generate energy! With that energy, the several arrohead-shaped LEDs in the object are lit so that you might see where you’re going in a power outage or other emergency situation!

So simple! Watch this design spread across the internet now – the most virally ready designs are the same ones that follow the Pop Art jealous critic manifesto: “I could have thought of that” “Yeah, but you didn’t!” Well played, trio of designers.

This project is a 2010 LiteOn design award winenr!

Designers: ShuoYang, Bolong Huang and Qiao Yang

    Do they wait at the top for someone to take them back down? Or do they have a secret rail that takes them to the bottom (generating one heck of a lot of energy) I like the idea, but maybe pezio pads on the steps would be better… Or both. Either way, free energy!

    Whilst being a brilliant idea it would, I think, be an extremely dangerous item to have on a staircase handrail.

      Indeed. If you were to slip and fall, the item would provide no resistence and you would just pull it with you, no trouble.

    Which would make even more energy! Yaaay!!

    no worry, when you got dangerous condition, your hand must hardly hold what you hold. If this product is flexible and there's some material of impendance, and the material doesn't contact with handrail in normal situation, but when you hardly hold it, it will tightly touch on the handrail.
