Green Noise / A runway light

Green Noise
Green Noise

Green Noise can transform noise into energy through noise collection. The airport is one of the noisiest places on earth. Runway lights are necessary to guide airplanes whenever they land or take off. The product collects the noise generated during landing and taking off and convert it to energy that will power the runway lights. This system will help save airports a huge amount of electricity to power the runway lights.
The Green Noise is based on the shape of conical speakers, this allows the Green Noise to easily absorb sound and prevent rainwater from collecting on the bottom. This will allow Green Noise to function on all types of weather, rain or shine.
The screen displays the information needed by airport personnel. The Green Noise stands on a tripod like structure making it convenient for technicians to quickly change the light when it gets broken. It is also modular which makes it convenient to setup.
