City Project / Things
- copper wire 0.5 mm
- 1 led lightbulb
- cardboard tube 160 x 17 mm
- 6 magnets 15 x 5 mm
To create device that transforms the kinetic energy from your motion into power and stores it. We are going to use inductor technology that enables the device to generate significant power while remaining compact. The idea is that movement shakes internal magnets which generate current that can be then stored and used.
Our first aim was to understand how induction works. We decided to make a tube covered with copper coil connected to the lightbulb and to put inside the tube magnets. The result that we wanted to see – was blinking lightbulb.
We had some problems with soldering copper wire to the lightbulb but soon we are going to improve our skills 🙂
This video shows how induction works.
