Turning "Whatever" into Electricity [Innovation]
posted January 7 2014 12:38.12 by spic0m




Civil engineer Martin Wickett looked at existing methods of generating electricity and said "Whatever." But that wasn't a statement of apathy. In fact, he designed a generator with an innovative set of gears that converts random motion into unidirectional rotation. Dubbed the Whatever Input to Torsion Transfer (WITT) transmission, the recently patented device harvests six degrees of movement and transfers the motion to a flywheel that always spins in the same direction. The flywheel drives the turbine of a generator. Watch it in action here:
