Wake Forest sophomore Yinger 'Eagle' Jin has discovered a way to create energy from the waves produced by lap swimmers. According to Phys.org, "Jin constructed an oscillating water column, one of the most productive wave energy converters available, to test the amount of electricity that could feasibly be produced by the pool's waves. It uses a large volume of moving water (in the case of Wake Forest's Reynolds Gym pool, the waves generated by daily swimmers) as a piston in a cylinder." The energy produced was enough to power 10 100-watt lightbulbs for a day. Read More
