Energy harvesting from a fluttering membrane

Finally, a good side of aeroelasticity! We harnessed the fluttering membrane to generate electricity (well, a tiny bit of). It’s only a demonstrator, so please don’t be picky about the fact that we use a lot of electricity (the fan in the background) to generate ‘lil electricity (the LED).
