    Design and beautiful
    Thank you for this design

    gear belts are the most effecient method of getting from the turbine to the generator. an old electric typewritter had gearbelt drives and 110 volve mini motors not sure if there induction motors or the kind that can serve as generator when turned. magnetic motors are they called? anyway we used these on several prototype centrifuges so they work great on samall projects may be smaller motors on r c controled cars or some thing. erector sets had those pully wheels and a ruberband this things prototype it's about the ideas it generates isn't it. it's generating right now ideas!!!

    I can't see the 'blue connector to rod' piece.

    Motor PLEASE?

    to add a generator all you need is a small DC motor from a toy or something. hook it up however (that part is easy) then if you spin it, it acts as a generator and produces a small amount of electricity.

    i used this technique with a wind turbine of my own, however the outcome was a puny 0.3v with strong wind. but its a start.

    I really appreciated this design. However, I need to know how to add a motor. Please provide me with instructions at holler141415@netzero.net.

    the pics are kinda messed up its hard to see the k-nex

    i also need to know the proper materials as i also cant get it properly
