Music is a powerful thing and Spark by Diana Simpson Hernandez, a recent graduate from Royal College of Art, shows that this power is much more tangible than one would first think. Instead of connecting to people solely on an emotional level, this modern instrument creates clean energy for those who really need it.

While Spark by Diana Simpson Hernandez might be able to charge a person's cellphone, it can also provide light in the third world homes. Part of the Shake Your Power project, it works thanks to a "magnet that moves backwards and forwards through a coil of copper wire called a solenoid. This energy is then stored in a rechargeable battery," according to Psfk. It is easy to use. Stats for Percussion Power Generators Trending: This Quarter & Popular
