Comments Off on SPARK: Creating Clean Energy Through the Power of Music

Royal College of Art graduate Diana Simpson Hernandez has designed the percussion shaker SPARK, which converts the energy from playing it into electricity. Users can plug in a light or charge up a mobile phone, simply through having a music jam. The project called Shake Your Power was conceived and is led by Faithless percussionist Sudha Kheterpal , and is about bringing clean energy to places in the world without electricity through the power of music. The project is being launched in Kenya where 75 percent of the population lives without access to electricity.
