Share

Some of the noisiest places on the planet are the airport runways. But designer Hung-Uei Jou decided to makes use of noise pollution to turn it into electricity.

He designed a gadget dubbed Green Noise that is able to identify, trap and transform sound energy into power that can be used to power runways lights.

The Green Noise has the shape of a conical speaker, which allows the device to catch sound waves easier. It stands on a tripod base and can work in any weather. Currently there are no specifications on the device.
