Imagine, never needing to find another power source other than your own body? Seems strange, but I can also see the possibility that we are headed in this direction. Posthumanism or cyborgs (cylons!)? Would you get something like this if it were safe, and available?




Naomi Kizhner, an Israeli graduate student, may have solved that problem. Naomi designs jewelry that harnesses your body’s energy to generate electrical power. Some of her devices are a little bit creepy- they are embedded into the wearer’s veins, and then use the wearer’s movements and blood flow to turn a small wheel inside the device, generating electricity.

That. Is. Freaking. Cool.

I would never be able to get one, as I would be far, far too squeamish, but wow. Definitely thinking outside the box.

Indeed, it reminded me of the Fremen Stillsuit from Frank Herbert's "Dune" which:


A stillsuit is a full body suit worn in the open desert of the planet Arrakis that was designed to preserve the body's moisture. It consisted of various layers that would absorb the body's moisture through sweating and urination, and then filter the impurities so that drinkable water would be circulated to catchpockets. The individual could then drink the reclaimed water from a tube attached to the neck. A stillsuit, kept in working order and maintained properly, permitted the wearer to survive for weeks in the open desert.

Your body provides the pumping action.

Or even the bioports from the movie "eXistenZ":



Extreme body modifications of the future (maybe even the future of gaming, plug yourself in!).

Like an LVAD in reverse.

A unwise concept : risking Infection & blood clots to obtain the power of watch-battery.

Unwise perhaps, but people still get 3-D teflon implants and such things...they aren't necessarily completely "safe" or "wise" either, eh to each his/her own:

That would be awesome. I already donate blood and plasma, so I am not squeamish. So something like this would power up my "Dune" suit.

very elegant

As long as it only needs a few microwatts, you're in business, I suppose.
