Lighting Carpet / interior decoration

Lighting Carpet
Lighting Carpet

Lighting carpet is a module product that could transfer kinetic energy into electric energy. When people put feet on the carpet’s surface, three press generators under a steel board are pressed to transfer kinetic energy into electric energy. Transferred electricity is stored into a tiny battery to provide power for LED lights. In some places such as airports and train stations, it is difficult for people to find their destinations because of large volume of people. LED lights on the lighting carpets could be used as ground indicator lights. Large volume of people could provide lots of kinetic energy for transferring into lots of electricity.
