Gustav Klimt - Hygieia (Detail from Medicine) (1900)

Here’s an interesting spin on techno-“wearables.” This student project harvests energy from the body: For instance, “Blood Bridge: designed to tap directly into the action of ulnar artery – the body’s main blood vessel – the pulmonary flow of the heart spins an enclosed wheel to generate electricity.”
This seems more conceptual than practical, but pretty provocative just the same.
Industrial design graduate student, Naomi Kizhner of Jerusalem’s Hadassah College envisions jewelry one day serving purposes beyond adornment, a three-piece collection connecting and converting the human body into one gigantic battery for biological data feedback.
Energy Addicts’ entomological-styled accessories hints of early David Cronenberg at his best/worst, the jewelry’s macabre beauty furthered by how each piece is worn: sharp pincers and stings pierce skin, establishing an “interface” between body and each bio-electrically powered accessory.
