Hydro & Kinetic Energy
GTech Hydro Charge
This is an accessory designed to charge GTech garden product batteries. This uses water pressure and kinetic energy to produce electricity to recharge the GTech batteries. This is achieved by pushing water through turbines from the gsrden tap and the water goes through the hydrocharge and out into the built in hose. The hose pipe roller can also generate electricity through the modement of the hose roller. The unit also has a large handle meaning users can eisily control the flow of water through an ergonomic solution.
This Ocian snake is designed to have several ways of generating energy. The first is kinetic energy. The snake used the friction generated by waves to create electricity. The second is mini turbines built into the snake which makes the modules roll from the force of thewaves flowing through the body. The final form is solar, the entire body of the snake is coated in a solar casing meaning if it is a quiet day then the snake can still produce energy from the sun.
"Selfe Charging" Wheelbarrow
This is a wheelbarrow that adapts simple technology from an E-Bike. This wheelbarrow is capable of generating energy from regenerative braking. This means the wheelbarrow is capable of assisting the user with heavy loads uphill and regen braking downhill and when there is a light load. The amount of regen and assist is capable of being adjusted from the handle.
This river rock produces energy using several Archimedes screw. It is disguised as a rock so it blends into the natural surroundings and looks like an old rock to anyone passing by.
This Shoe Battery is designed to use kinetic motion to create electricity which it stores on internal batteries so the user can use them when they need to charge a phone. The Shoe Battery attaches to the shoe with a clip and sits on top of the shoelaces.
The Hydro Energiser is a guttering system designed to capture water, flow it through an Archimedes screw and then collect the water for garden use or can interface with a greywater recycling system so the building can use the rainwater for grew water uses. The guttering also has the bonus of a leaf filter meaning all the debris that falls onto the roof falls over the edge and cannot get caught in the water system.
