Introduction: Hard Drive Parts Generator and Theory Tester
This is a device built out of hard drive parts and a piece of wood that simulates the action of a windbelt. I built this because I think this way of producing energy could be used differently With this I can be anywhere and not need wind to power it while I think of a different way it can be used.
These are the final pics. The pictures I took weren't very good while I was building this but, it is built the same as the other generators of this type on instructables.com. One end is built on a scrap piece of wood. The hard drive parts were given to me by a really nice man of a local computer store near my home. I tried various different rubberband combinations to connect the two arms. I used three.
I also have a video of it posted of it working.
With just one magnet above and below the coil I am able to hold 2.0VAC for a few seconds strumming on the end of the other hard drive arm.
