Israeli Designer Creates Jewelry Which Turns Blood Flow Into Electricity

In yet another innovative invention to come out of Israel, jewelry designer Naomi Kizhner has taken the word “innovative” to a new level with her aptly named “Energy Addicts” range, which sees pieces of jewelry inserted into the veins, turning a person’s blood flow into kinetic power, or in other words, electricity.

USA Today reported on Saturday about the new range, which features invasive pieces of gold jewelry that have spikes at each end which are inserted into the wearer’s veins in two places.

Once inserted — and, of course, the products are not for the faint-hearted or squeamish among us — the continuous flow of blood turns the golden wheel inside the design, eventually creating sufficient kinetic energy to produce electricity that is sufficient to light up an LED, and soon maybe even charge mobile devices.

The innovator of the jewelry range, Naomi, created the pieces as a part of her graduation project at Jerusalem’s Hadassah College.

As she told reporters, “In our modern life, energy is everything. It is the force that drives economies globally, many times disregarding the consequences.”

HNGN reported that, in speaking about her views on using the human body as a resource on its own, Naomi said, “I wanted to explore the post-humanistic approach that sees the human body as a resource. It interested me to imagine what the world would be like once it has experienced a steep decline in energy resources and how we will feed our energy addiction. There are lots of developments of renewable energy sources, but the human body is a natural resource for energy that is constantly renewed, as long as we are alive.”

The three pieces available in the collection are called, the Blood Bridge, the Blinker, and the E-Pulse Conductor.

The Blood Bridge is inserted in the veins of the lower arm, while the Blinker fits on the bridge of the nose, harnessing the energy created while blinking. Each time the wearer blinks, there is an increased flow of blood to the area around the eyes and the jewelry collects that energy.

The E-pulse Connector fits on the upper back, collecting energy from the spinal cord nerves.
