Eco Factor: Concept highway lighting powered by renewable energy.
Concerned about the safety of the ever increasing number of cars on the highways, designers over at TAK Studio have come up with a sustainable lighting system dubbed the Turbine Light. The design is an entry in this year’s Greener Gadgets competition, and it aims to illuminate highways using renewable energy.
The system features a built-in wind turbine that uses the moving air from cars on the highways to generate clean energy, which is then used to power the lights. However, the practicality of the system is debatable as without a working prototype it would never be easy to check if moving cars produce enough wind energy to illuminate the lights all night long.
