Inefficiency Machines is the name of an innovatively interactive electronic installation that comprises an array of human-powered machines, and aims to spread a message to people about not taking electricity and energy for granted.

Devised by Royal College of Art graduate Meret Vollenweider as part of a collaboration with fellow student Wasabii Ng for the college's Information Experience Design program, this electronic installation features a trio of machines that users have to power by virtue of taxing body movements. For example, visitors can jump up and down on a trampoline in order to generate energy to turn on a television, or run a hairdryer by yelling into a microphone.

This intelligent electronic installation aims to give people an appreciation of energy, which forms a crucial part of everybody's day to live.
