W-Rotater / Bicycle

W-Rotater
W-Rotater

Have you ever realized that bicycles are often left idle aside? How about that if we can let the idling bikes collect wind power, the most common natural energy, for the supply of driving power! Based on that, W-Rotater comes out. When the bicycle is not running, the unique fan-shaped hub of the rear wheel can serve as a windmill which can be rotated by the wind. After transforming from the kinetic power to the electric power through a generator, the energy thus being accumulated in the storage battery will be used as a driving energy as well as the light in need at night. It’s environmental friendly.
