Jewelry Harvests Energy from Veins

Yunus Emre Duyar
April 6th 2015

Industrial designer and graduate student from Hadassah College in Jerusalem, Naomi Kizhner designed jewelry that could theoretically harvest energy from the body of the person wearing it. The jewelry is connected to the person's veins and the blood is used to turn the wheels inside the jewelry, producing energy in return.

Kizhner's aim in creating the speculative project is not to produce such a device, but to create a discussion on how far humans can go in providing solutions to our constant need for energy. The tool is called Energy Addicts and it consists of three pieces of jewelry: The Blinker, The E-Pulse Conductor and The Blood Bridge.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
