Hi,   I would like to present the brief description of my energy harvesting project. Previous posts written by Sean and Victor made me realize that I have to be careful about what I say regarding the energy that is available from transducers. That is why in title I stated 'almost', because I am not entirely sure that I can fully substitute the battery with only the harvester as a power supply. But back to the topic … The other night I was making diner in the kitchen and I saw a b ...
When I started thinking about energy harvesting, and read about the kit, I had a very clear idea in mind what to make with energy harvesting. In the Netherlands, where I live, a lot of people ride bicycles. There's even a Wikipedia page about it! As you can read about it, there are more cycles than people in the Netherlands. However, "with great cycling power comes great cycling responsibility". The Dutch law tells that you should have a workign head and tail light on your bike. Regularly, polic ...
Hey everyone,   I too am part of the energy harvest challenge. Unfortunately I don't have my kit yet but according to tracking number it got to Australia last night so will hopefully get a hands on play Monday or Tuesday.   My original plan was to hopefully monitor my homebrewing process with it. I'm doubtful I will be getting enough heat from fermentation and CO2 emissions to monitor everything off that but will be looking at things I could do to harvest power from grain till the ke ...
Did you pick the odd one out?   There is no odd one out. These are all energy harvesting sources that have been successfully used.      The Car Fridge is Thermal Energy Generator Source      The Electric Drill is an Inductive Energy Source      The Electronic Cymbal is a PiezoElectric Source      The Drum Synthesiser is a Current Loop Source   The wires coming out of the each device are tap poin ...
