EM Harvester / Harvester

EM Harvester

We are sourrounded by electromagnetic fields which we are producing for information transfer or as a byproduct. Accordingly to this I built special harvesting devices that are able to tap into several electromagnetic fields to exploit them. The energy is getting stored in an usual battery. So you can for example gain redundant energy from the power supply of a coffee machine, a cell phone or the catenary of a train by holding the harvester directly into the electromagnetic field whose strenght is indicated by a LED on the top of the harvester. Depending on the strenght of the field it is possible to charge a small battery within one day.
