ENER-GYM / Urban Illumination System

ENER-GYM
ENER-GYM

ENER-GYM is a hybrid urban illumination system driven by two distinct sources: human-power and electricity. Located in public areas, the lamps are connected to outdoor fitness facilities which carry and transfer human power generated to the light system. The linear lighting in the central of the pole indicates if the LED lamp is being charged by human-power and presents current battery status. The monitor on the side displays the calories burned and the duration of lighting contributed by individuals. By motivating and emphasizing the healthy life style for individuals, ENER-GYM also enhances community’s awareness of green energy.
