Profiles is where we put a spotlight on startups and entrepreneurs transforming the world. For our very first edition, we are featuring Pavegen; a company that produces renewable energy through electric floor tiles. Just by walking on a Pavegen block, you generate human kinetic energy which then gets converted into clean, off-grid electricity.
The Swedish audio company Urbanista just released its latest Bluetooth speaker; the Urbanista Malibu. Powered through light, the wireless speaker doesn’t need to be plugged in to recharge; and can be used indoors or outdoors. The Urbanista Malibu is made from recycled plastics and fibers, and uses Powerfoyle solar cell technology to function.
