  • Stepping up to a bright idea

    At first I wasn’t sure I was reading the CNN report correctly. The story hinged on special pavement that uses the impact of human feet to generate electricity.

    Talk about a bright idea. The “PaveGen” project is the brainchild of Laurence Kemball-Cook, 25. He’s an engineer who built a prototype of the device during his last year in school and is now working to make and market his creation.
