Physics Project

  1. Feb 16, 2009 #1
    Take a look at this:

    I am looking for ideas about a physics project. The theme is "future household energy concepts".

    I found this thing from a http://www.gadgetsquick.co.uk website. How does this thing work? I wanted to simulate it into a mini-house model so that it functions like a power generator.

    Anyone can lead me to a good website with step by step instruction on how to make one of that?

    Looks like a gyroscope, pretty sure it just works on the principle that moving magnets in the proximity of wire coils will create a charge. It can be replicated by any spinning object. Not sure how that would work in a house, though.
