Gotwind's Kinetic Energy ‘Dance Charger’ looking to dance into production: "We designed a generator capable of converting mechanical to electrical energy and after several weeks of head scratching we achieved a generating efficiency of 85% and a generator small enough in size to be mounted on an armband.The electrical energy generated is rectified from a bipolar current impulse (AC) to direct current (DC) to charge a rechargeable battery. A high efficiency booster circuit is then used to achieve the constant current power supply to charge a mobile phone, or any other portable electronic device for that matter.
The core design principles of our generator could also be adopted for generating charge whilst performing other activities such as jogging, or even walking and be leg or waist mounted. We are currently researching into other varioations of the product and gaining higher charge efficiencies."
