3D Printed Lamp Is Vertical Axis Wind Turbine and Powers Itself

3D Printed Lamp Is Vertical Axis Wind Turbine and Powers Itself

© Margot Krasojevic via Ponoko Margot Krasojevic combines three of our favorite things, LEDs, 3D Printing and vertical axis wind turbines, to create the Air Turbine Light that spins in the breeze, generating the electricity it needs to operate. © Margot Krasojevic The Air Turbine light comprises of the following main components: - A propeller mounted on a shaft, in this case the outer shell attached to the axis via an rotor arm. - An Alternator or Generator for producing the electricity when the shaft is rotated, in this instance a dynamo which lights the LED. The body of the light is attached to a vertical axis which turns a diode rotor that transforms the movement into light. The 3d printed shell traps wind which rotates the axis in turn generating and transforming this energy into light. The lamp is functional a propeller that uses the wind’s kinetic energy to turn it. ...
