Day 1 #energybicycle

Day+1+%23energybicycle

Today we prototyped the model for our mini “wind turbine”.  It is made of five layers of paper and it can spin. We have yet to make it produce energy.  Problems that we are facing currently is getting the pinwheel to spin the generator and to make sure it stays in the same condition even after high speeds.

Our problem:  you are biking down the street and your phone runs out of battery.  We want to make sure your phone does not run out of battery while you bike so you can charge your phone while biking.
