Fossil fuels are becoming scarcer and harder to extract. We are going to have to develop and use novel technologies to overcome the eventual energy shortages. Industrial designer Naomi Kizhner has probably proposed the most novel approach of all — extract and harvest that energy from our own bodies, using jewellery implants that double up as kinetic-energy sucking devices.
Kizhner is a graduate student from Hadassah College in Jerusalem, who describes herself as “a trend theorist that is looking to define the new black — practicing everyday escapism”. Kizhner explains on her website that Energy Addicts, her final year project, “seeks to deal with questions of how to see the world, based primarily on biological energy and what the meaning of biological capital is when the accrual is contingent on biological data”.
