Designed by the UK-based technology company Pavegen, these floor tiles are intended to convert kinetic energy into electricity for a variety of different infrastructure uses.

Durable and simple to install, the floor tiles help to capture 5W of energy for every footstep that is taken on them. This can then be captured for lighting areas, powering billboards and much more.
