Generation Playground / plyground

Generation Playground

Lacking of Electric power and lacking of play facilities for children may be two of the big issues of many backward regions. So why not combine them? The concept of the Generation Playground is inspired by this idea. It includes a small football field and some other facilities. The ground of the playground is made of piezoelectricity materials. The internal generation of electrical charge resulting from an applied mechanical force such as stomping and running. There are power generators inside of each facilities. All the electric power will be stored and then transmit to the houses.
