Conception Handle

This handle is inspired from a game called ‘hitching the ring’ that was popular in our childhood, which offers an opportunity for bus or subway passengers to get back this happy experience in childhood. A piezoelectric actuator equipped inside the handle would turn mechanical energy to electrical energy which will be used for LED light in the handle when the passenger is holding it down. Meanwhile, the hand will be more comfortable thanks to the shock absorption effect created by the inside spring. A green energy can be generated while the passengers are enjoying themselves.
