Light Up the City

The conceptual Noise Power system explores the transformation of sound energy, specifically that of road traffic, into usable light. Designed to surround roadways, the solution harnesses energy produced by acoustic micro-vibrations which are passed through a sensitive membrane to a generator that provides electricity to low-voltage LEDs. The result is a large scale system that not only reduces noise pollution, but provides safety lighting powered by the very drivers that need it!
