A walk with Hermes


Da un’idea innovativa di una giovane studentessa del liceo scientifico, al prototipo di realizzazione in laboratorio, al brevetto già nelle mire di un paio di aziende che intendono metterla sul mercato. Questa scarpa si basa sul principio dell’energy harvesting , ovvero del recupero dell’energia che si produce nella fase di movimento, purtroppo dispersa senza essere utilizzata. Con le Hermes ai piedi, mentre si fa jogging si può ricaricare il telefono. Complimenti a Irene Chirico, ma soprattutto ai professori, i tecnici, i finanziatori che hanno creduto nel suo progetto, investendo sull’innovazione giovane e nostrana.      •     At the beginning it was a high school student’s idea, that became a lab prototype, that finally became an interesting licence for a couple of shoe factories to buy. The shoe concept moves from energy harvesting, in other words harvesting the energy naturally produced when walking-running which otherwise would be blown in the air. Have a walk with the Hermes and charge your smart-phone battery while jogging. Congrats to Irene Chirico, not to mention to professors, supporters, technicians who helped her to realize the project and invested in youth innovations, totally made in Italy.     •      イレーネキーリコさんと言う高校生に発明された歩きながら電力が作れるスニーカーです。こういう技術は英語で「エネルギーハーベースチング」と言われ、靴には今まで使ったことなさそです。日本ではこれがもあるかもしれませんが、イタリアでは初めてで見て、しかも若いイタリア人の女性によって発明することがとても珍しいだと思います。イレーネさん、これからも頑張ってください。
