Strait Power is a power generation unit that mimics the way the Basking Shark swims through water to generate power. The project design combines elements of artistic design, engineering and biomimicry. The unit’s housing is comprised of two counter-rotating turbines and the converging nozzle receives a power boost from a secondary convergence nozzle. With the highly technical knowledge this invention requires, many people may wonder how it ended up coming from an art and design student.

"Our state-of-the-art prototype imaging facilities increase our student’s capabilities immensely," said Rogers. "Without this technology in place, Anthony may not have been able to successfully create the first versions of Strait Power. His work is indicative of why we expanded our facilities. We wanted to make certain that our design students had the resources they needed to help bolster the Creative Economy."
