Elton Rhee, Ludvig Pehrson and Luis Meyer, submitted Chromebook Type to Cannes Future Lions. A self-powered laptop whose keys are installed with Piezo-Electric nanogenerators that create energy from the pressure of typing.

A quarter of the world's population lacks electricity and so the team from Miami Ad School, came up with the genius idea that, by just typing on a keyboard will generate enough electricity to power the computer. This will keep countries in the know about what is happening all around the world. It enables everyone to have the ability to gain knowledge and learn, no-one should ever be at a disadvantage because of technology and with this it would help hugely to bridge the gap between third world countries.
