Kinetic Design

Eco-friendly appeal of products that create energy through motion
Implications - People are consistently looking for ways to decrease humanity's reliance on fossil fuels and non-renewable energy; thus, more and more green-minded designers are creating products and innovations that require movement to create energy or to function. By taking advantage of the kinetic energy produced by repetitive motion, these designs contribute to a greener society by helping to create renewable energy, while at the same time turning day-to-day products and experiences into more interactive and engaging activities.
