First trial of The Triboelectric Effect

We have been playing with the idea of not working with piezoelectric technology but instead use the triboelectric effect. That way every time the leaves touch any other material they charge that material with energy. To test the triboelectric effect, we built a leaf...

Raiki

The Raiki project is a biological microgrid for underprivileged urban and areal areas that takes advantage of the natural functions of plants combined with energy harvesting technology. The biological plant design is based on the research of current tree functions, triboelectric technology, incorporating data on wind velocities, and leaf shape analysis.
