Smartain
Smartain

Smartain is a portable fountain that does not require piping and external electric source.The concept is based on the law of gravity and the piezoelectric effect. Piezoelectric materials are materials that produce an electric current when they are placed under mechanical stress . The Primary energy for pumping water is supplied by one of the batteries. water falls down on piezoelectric surfaces and cause vibration in them.These vibrations increase by the springs .Piezoelectric surfaces convet vibrations to electricity and store it in the other battery. When the stored energy was sufficient this battery supply the energy for pumping water.
