For those looking for a thrill in life, the Electromagnetic Harvester helps people to steal. Of course, in this case, stealing isn't illegal. Forget about solar power and other sustainable methods of collecting energy, the Electromagnetic Harvester charges batteries by tapping into the electromagnetic fields that surround people on a daily basis.

Developed by Dennis Siegel, a Digital Media student from the University of the Arts in Bremen, Germany, the Electromagnetic Harvester looks like an unassuming handheld device. Small and white save for a bright red LED light, the Electromagnetic Harvester gains redundant energy from such devices as phones, coffee machines and more.

Since the Electromagnetic Harvester accesses already exisiting but unused energy sources, it is a ingenius way to power up.
