Animals produce energy all the time, every day. Living beings are like living machines; we intake food and convert it into energy, which with help from exterior machinery can be made into electricity. I want to test this out by creating a device that could collect energy made from a hamster or guinea pig running in a wheel and convert it into electricity that could charge a phone or laptop.

The most important attribute that contributes to social innovation is having sympathy based on first hand experienced rather than what you think the situation might be like.
