W-Rotater / Bicycle

W-Rotater
W-Rotater

Have you ever realized that for the most of the time a bicycle is standing on the ground uselessly? How about that if we can park the bike and collect the wind power, the most common natural energy, for the use of later motivation simultaneously! Based on that, W-Rotater came out. When not running, the unique fan-shaped hub can make the rear wheel become a windmill which can rotate with wind blowing. After transforming from the kinetic power to the electric power through a generator, the energy is accumulated in the storage battery for the granted of the next route as well as the light under the needs at night. It’s environmental friendly.
