The Newton Machine

The Newton Machine

Reconstrained Design Group

From electricity consumption and use, to generation, transmission, and storage, our lives are energy rich, but our relationship with energy is threadbare; electricity is ethereal and distant, a number on a meter. This community-led project tries to change that relationship by making electricity tangible through the design prototyping of an energy generation and storage solution called a ‘Newton Machine’. By dropping a weight from an elevated point, its fall creates energy that can be harvested and stored, which makes it a very convenient solution for places with cliffs and mountains.
