A new reason to climb the stairs, the staircase whose handrail is able to generate energy. As the person moves up or down the steps of a ladder, a device connected to the railing will transform the kinetic energy of movement into electrical energy, generating light for those using the stairs. Created by Chinese designers Shuo Yang, Yang Qiao and Bolong Huang, this amazing device lights up when pushed.

With this invention, the overall energy costs of buildings could be reduced through the use of kinetic energy with the action of going up and down stairs.
