I agree, Liz. Energy harvesting and 3D printing are two of today's hottest technical areas. Energy harvesting is coming along at the right time, because so many of today's electronic devices are so power stingy and need very little current to run them. Small amounts of current can now be useful.

Thank you for providing a different perspective, skroeger, and your points are well taken and certainly based in expertise and experience. I still think Ann's design could have usefulness, and, as you say, she would be more than a welcome addition to the field of engineering.

I'm awaiting the day our mobile devices get rid of chargers, or realistically speaking, when their battery lasts for weeks, more realistically speaking, days. 

Coming to the topic, the work done by this talented young individual is praise-worthy. Even if something similar already exists, she made an effort to bring betterment.

Might I suggest McGill University as a good Canadian school?  Lots of good engineers from McGill.  As a disclaimer, I'm not a graduate but have known some.

McGill is an excellent institute. I'm considering that place in pursuit of my Masters degree.

Your suggestion, notarboca, is noted! I didn't mean to criticize any Canadian schools, by the way...I just personally don't know about universities with engineering specialities there. But I am sure there are a lot ready to welcome inventors like Ann.
