When Noise is Good for Lights!

C’mon noise can never be good or pleasant for anything! This pollutant give me enough grief when they tear down an old building and bring in them drill machines and saws! The only way I’m going to like them is if something useful like sound harvesting is done! Something like the Eco Noise, where these special tiles absorb the noise and convert it to energy to power up the gates with mesmerizing lights display. The idea is sweet, but I’d much rather power just one lamp than have a fancy fence.

The Eco Noise is a Lotus Prize entry.

    How is the conversion done? what principle is at work here?

    So…given noise pollution, we add light pollution?

    I think it's science-fiction, and even if it would work than it wouldn't produce enough energy.

    Sun produces energy, thanks to massive sound waves. So there’s no point in adding “science-fiction” to this. When it’s actually a fact!

    Ever get pumped with energy, when hearing your favorite music? That’s the power of sound waves.
    Ever walked on city streets? Full of noise! You can use this to light the streets. This has a future.
