ONIXX

About

Soon, your shorts will charge your phone

ONIXX is an ergonomic textile that generates energy through the user’s natural body movement, using the lightweight and versatile properties of dielectric elastomers. It is a personal and effortless green energy solution. This first version of ONIXX targets nature enthusiasts, motivated by community-oriented and sustainable lifestyle habits. However, the project’s future 2030 vision involves a greater sharing platform in which wearers of all kinds contribute to a new source of democratised and crowd sourced human generated energy.
