The Nyaki pillar

The Nyaki is a flexible, modular and buoyant pillar disposed in rows, to break incoming waves. It can be scaled to fit everywhere. Modules are made of recycled plastic. The pillar will fold at the joints between the modules, allowing boat passage. The joints will integrate piezoelectrics to generate electricity. The pillar will have LEDs on top. One pillar of the field will house and power water quality sensors, allowing real-time data gathering. A study predicts a loss of 1.5B$, only for the Saint-Lawrence. Erosion is a really big market. The first targeted market will be governments.
