01SJ Biennale

by Mouna

I’m participating in the 2010 01SJ Biennale as part of  Eyebeam roadshow. Along with Jenny Broutin & Carmen Trudell from Fluxxlab, we’ll be offering workshops to teach people how to build their own Personal Power Plants.

The Personal PowerPlant is a portable device that harnesses electricity through a hand crank generator (with solar cell option) into a rechargeable battery for use in powering portable electronic devices through a USB terminal. The workshop introduced circuit basics and sustainable energy harvesting. Workshop participants assembled and took home their very own Personal PowerPlant. The first version of the kit (v1) can be seen on the Instructables website.
