The goal in this project is not only turning any heat source to electricity, but it is the communication and education with design. EcoCharge represents one unknown energy source among all others around us. We are living in an age that human is shifting back to nature, mostly similar to the Romantic time in a reaction to the Industrial Revolution. So we are all responsible in this shift to trigger each other for leading towards clean energy sources. EcoCharge is equipped with a display. A OLED display shows what voltage produced by what temperature difference and what is the output. EcoCharge presents values of energy sources around us, no matter how little they are, but they can have impact. In my opinion, products like EcoCharge can trigger people to think more about alternative source around them.
EcoCharge works without having a battery. One of the design intentions were minimizing the use of material, and make it simple in parts and more understandable in use.
