nPowerPEG Converts Kinetic Energy to Power for your Gadgets

VoicePrints Turn Your Words Into Wall Art
It seems like virtually anything can be turned into art. While the spoken word can be art in the form of poetry and song, it’s not often that it’s something that you can physically see. After all, a voice is something heard, not seen.
