This product works with the successful process of converting wind kinetic energy into electric energy then in to light energy. This can be seen by when turning the fan using wind which is connected to two gears that spins the motor which will transfer electric energy to make the led light up.
One area that I think was very successful in the process was the fusion model I made. Although the holes don’t fit at first, but after drilling the holes bigger, I discover the distance between the two gears fit perfectly. I find this very important because if the distance was too apart or too close, the whole project might not work since the gears weren’t able to move properly.
One part I think was not the successful was the overall appearance of the project. It is not very appealing. It is able to see all the wires, gears and motor working and does not look that professional. However it does shows the process of energy transfer which reaches the aim of the project.
Something that can improve next time is the appearance and the overall look of it. By making it more appealing will have a better result to achieve the aim.
This project have impacts on the environment and to its client. It shows how renewable energy is transfer into usable electric energy in a reduced version. It also a toy/ device that can be played by children or others to learn the transfer of energy.
