Jewelry That Harvests Energy From Your Veins
Let’s read that again. It’s jewelry that HARVESTS ENERGY from your VEINS.
Need a charge? Just STAB your jewelry straight into your own body to draw a charge!
(I may be a tad SCARED SKINNY of needles.)
Didn’t she watch The Matrix? We shouldn’t be giving our own technology the idea that we can be used as human batteries!
Okay, so you may have noticed me taking a hypochondriac’s spin here. In fair representation, Naomi Kizhner created these devices as a social commentary on human energy consumption, not as a practical way to harvest energy. (Although I still say sticking a couple needles into yourself to make a wheel spin inside a transparent casing is CREEPY, but there you go.) In her words, the jewelry is a discussion piece “about how far will we go to in order to ‘feed’ our addiction in the world of declining resources.”

What do you think, readers? Cool or creepy?
