Where Does Power Come From And Where Is It Going?
“Left, left, left right left.” A song we Americans know all to well. As soldiers fall in line, train, singing a song, making them synchronize with each other. They create a symbolism of unity that is far greater and more important then one man could do by himself in the military.
That unity helps build something that is more then just a march.
We don’t think about light much as millennials because from birth it’s always been there. Electricity lighting up every corner of the United States that if you drive now, it would take you a hour or more to get to a place where there is no electricity. No light to guide your way. Yet even then you probably have a flash light in your car or even a cell phone to help you out. Well now you might not need anything but your feet to light your way.

Pavegen is a storing device that converts kinetic energy into electricity to power devices of all types. By adding pressure to the device implanted in the ground. The Pavegen creates a pulse or energy that creates 7 watts of power. Simple enough. Now by adding multiple set points, say through a walk way or on the sidewalk in the park. You could use this technology to light up the way along the sidewalk as people walk by, pedipower.
