Human Power

Background

Most life on our planet depends on light energy from the sun that comes from the nuclear fusion of hydrogen. All creatures that breath - like us - depend indirectly on this energy by consuming the biomass and the oxygen generated by plants. The evolutionary process has developed the muscle organ, which converts chemical energy into mechanical energy. Human muscles are able to deliver 100 to 200 Watts of mechanical energy, while trained top athletes can reach up to 1000 Watts for brief periods. We offer several small hand operated devices that convert human muscle energy into other forms:

Enlight - Torch Recharged by Shaking

The English physicist Michael Faraday discovered the principle that change in the magnetic flux surrounding a coil induces a voltage. Enlight uses this principle: When the torch is shaken, a magnet moves back and forth through a coil. The electricity generated charges a capacitor to power an LED light. Simply shake for 45 seconds and you have approx. 5-8 minutes bright LED light; - unlimited light without ever buying batteries.

FirePiston - Generating High Temperature by Compressing Air in a Cylinder

The FirePiston glowingly demonstrates the rise in temperature when a fixed mass of gas is compressed. A piece of tinder (a bit of toilet tissue will do) inside a hollow transparent cylinder ignites when the contained air is compressed by a hand operated piston. This is the same process that ignites the fuel inside diesel engines - properly called compression-ignition engines. Includes various tinders with instructions on how to use them for good effects.
