Introducing the bizarre new jewellery concept by Naomi Kizhner

This plucky industrial designer has created a new project to harvest energy from the human body using “invasive jewellery”. The project is called Energy Addicts and the accessories will convert your body’s natural subconscious processes (like blinking and blood pumping) into kinetic energy.

In an interview with Dezeen Magazine, Kizhner said: “It interested me to imagine what would the world be like once it has experienced a steep decline in energy resources and how we will feed our energy addiction. There are lots of developments of renewable energy resources, but the human body is a natural resource for energy that is constantly renewed, as long as we are alive.”

‘How does it work then?’ we hear you cry! Well, the jewellery pieces would be embedded (read: inserted) into the surface of the skin to utilise blood flow momentum, blinking etc. To be perfectly honest it sort of gives us the heebie-jeebies but we’ve got to give the girl kudos for at least trying other energy sources.

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
