“Finally, noise was able to prove its functionality aside from bothering you and polluting the environment through Green_Noise concept, an innovative speaker system that transforms noise into electric energy. This concept has been specially designed for airports, one of the noisiest place in the earth and also a place where a lot of energy is being consumed by the most essential runway lights. These conical shaped speakers can perform in any weather by absorbing sound or expelling rainwater and produces a significant amount of electricity to lighten the runway for safe landing and taking off. The tripod shaped structure of the concept ensures easy set-up and enables technicians to change the light quickly and conveniently if need. The rounded sidebar shows important information for further use.” [via]

The Design Critic: Looks pretty, looks pricey, looks unrealistic.
Our verdict: Not gonna happen.
