test bed ii is a project proposing a new energy technology by harvesting energy stored in cacti. scientists predict las vegas will run out of water and electricity by 2021. the project offers a utopian vision of the future of our planet, where cacti are a solution to the problems of water and energy scarcity.
the project explores the uses of cacti technology in the design of a mechanism to harvest and store power generated by the cacti. cactus energy devices installed on a large scale transform the water reservoir that once ran the hoover dam into an energy reservoir that harvests and stores electricity.
