Energy Parasites

“Energy parasites are handcrafted objects designed from scavenged parts to opportunistically harvest small bits of energy across public landscapes. Agnostic to energy origin or ownership, these artifacts redirect their captured energy through a variety of means including expressing it or storing it for later reacquisition and usage. Each parasite collects energy into a small 10 farad 2.5 volt super capacitor. This energy can be stored, expressed, or transferred to charge a mobile phone or other small electronic device.” from Energy Parasites website
