“Human Pump” : Using Kinetic Energy to Power the Water Pumps System


Are you aware that even your foot can be helpful in providing power to water pumps? The concept of “Human Pump” designed by an innovative designer named Gunwook Nam uses kinetic energy created by human foot traffic to power the system of water pumps. Different pumps are interlaced into an architectural construction which is used for main walking routes by people. When people walk, the structure would store the energy and further uses this energy to pump water to the surface. This concept promotes building with sustainable and reusable materials. Let’s see how far this design can be used in reality.
