E-Stream / Guidance system


iF concept design award 2012

iF concept design award 2012

As a rule, power generating blocks and guide tiles for the visually impaired are both located at the entrances to mass rapid transit systems, but few people know how important they are. "E-Stream" combines power generating blocks with the guide tiles to transform people’s steps into energy. When people step on the tiles, the tiles compress and this energy is fed into nearby batteries. This new product is also designed to make the general public more aware of guide tiles for the visually impaired.
