"Renewable" energy projects are all the rage these days and one subset that's spreading like dry rot is the idea of reclaiming energy from passing cars, walking, or whatever.  Strange thing, it isn't that new, as this example courtesy of Hugo Gernsback's Electrical Experimenter from about 1920 shows.

It even has a trendy "i" in front of its name.

The caption says it all: "Hoover says Economize, Hence no Free Rides". The statist has always desired to control and dictate human behavior, be he Republican or Democrat. Political affiliation does not guarantee ideology. But statist ideology always has the same end: Servitude to the state and poverty of the populace.
