Wind Power Wheel / Wheel

Wind Power Wheel
Wind Power Wheel

When the car wheels turn very quickly, rapid air flow is caused near the wheels, and Wind Power Wheel can absorb the air flow and translate it into electricity. I added a mini wind energy equipment into each spoke. When the wheel turns quickly, the air flow gets into the wind energy equipment through the air inlet, and the power generator begins to output electricity. I also added blades to the air inlet and outlet. When it is rainy, user can close the blades to keep the wind energy equipment from water.
