Yill, a portable energy source
Designer Werner Aisslinger offers his ‘Yill’ concept for the Berlin based company Younicos. Yill is an ideal renewable energy source to power portable devices.
In the countryside, in remote area without electricity or just outdoors, Yill seems to be an alternative to the generator. The design of the device looks like a wheel, all white with a retractable handle. With its lithium titanium, stronger and more effective than lithium ion batteries, Yill may confer a power of 300 watts, which is enough to supply a workstation up to three days depending on usage. The device itself is powered with an AC outlet and renewable energy sources such as solar energy. Yill will be presented for the first time during the design week in Milan in April.
Despite its size, it is easy to move, just pull the handle to rolls. The fact that he can ride should have been exploited by the designer to generate electricity with mechanical power.
