Harvest / fitness/energy harvesting


Harvest takes human movement and turns it into quantifiable energy, a little bit at a time. Through footwear, apparel and bicycle accessories, energy is stored to a micro rechargeable lithium-ion battery or a “Harvest Pod.” The user can check her energy metrics through the Harvest app. Harvest supplies the energy harvesting technology and partners with athletic companies. The user can upload their energy by visiting “Harvest Hotspots,” in sponsored stores. This energy is used locally to help power the store, and once enough energy is accumulated, a Renewable Energy Certificate is sold on the energy market and the proceeds are donated.
