This page offers a brief overview of design projects which are using energy harvesting principles.

art projects

These projects don't have the goal to be commercially exploitable. The projects are artistic research. The project can be esthetically pleasing, it can be humorous, it could be criticizing.

product design- existing products

These are products meant to be used. They are tested, they even have a "design" aspect. This in contrast with totally technical looking products of eg conrad.
Ljusa, IKEA
Solvind, IKEA
Solarvet, IKEA

energy harvesting games

Solly, Studio Roes, DDW2014 [4]
EnergyBugs: energy harvesting wearables for children: [5]
Paper generators, working with Teflon, Ivan Poupyrev and others. 2013 [6]

product design projects

These are projects, start-ups from designers. They can have a goal to make the world a better place to live in.

Soccket: A Soccer ball which charges itself while playing, [7]
Little Sun, Light for Africa: [8]

fashion projects

In this category we find design for garments that have the claim or are developing and studying the possibility of charging cell phones.

city design projects

These projects are using bigger spaces inside cities like roads or pathways to generate energy. The solar panels that can be seen on rooftops or on the roof of the newly built Central Railway Station in Rotterdam show that the solar panels can be used absolutely functional (rooftops of ordinary housings) or in innovative architecture (Railway station). Solar Bike Roads:

interior design projects

Using movement to generate energy. It could also be air streams, heat.

Dancefloor 2: [13]

Energy harvesting Kits

These kits are shwoing principles for children and can be compared to the energy harvesting games. The kit lacks any game aspect and is meant for demonstration and experiment.
