How could people become their own renewable source of energy?




Rocking Chair

Generating power while relaxing.
Reinhart Paelinck, Sebastian Schulte, Kevin Verheyen

All three of us were interested in how we could profit energy in a silent and recreational environment. That is why we started with the idea of using the movement of a rocking chair to generate energy.


Our starting point was personal furniture and we focused on three concepts:
1. A sort of climate cooling system where a fan is driven by our rocking chair.
2. We power a wheel and play a short movie or animation.
3. Creating a heaven full of stars by turning an umbrella.

This prototype makes an umbrella spin as you are rocking in the chair.
