Sonea conceptThe industrial designers Boyeon Kim, Jihoon Kim, Da-Woon Chun and Myung-Suk Kim have come up with a concept energy absorbing system which converts all that noise into clean energy.

The new machine called Sonea, measures 450mm X 450mm X 80mm, weighing in at a whole 7kg. Designers claims that the system can generate about 30W of power per decibel of sound it intercepts. It is made of ABS, Poly Carbonate elements and other more obvious components.

An average plane makes noise around 140dB. When taking off, the amount of clean energy generated with the SONEA would be about 240kW. If we calculate with 500 airplanes that takes offs each day the amount of energy would be approximately 120MW of green energy.
