Electric power collector / public device

Electric power collector

The prayer-wheel is one of the pray tools in the Tibetan Buddhism. They usually can be found in China’s Tibet region, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan and several states in North India, where are suffering in serious poverty and lacking of electric power. The true believers like the local people and tourists will roll the wheels to pray to be blessed from The Buddha. The prayer-wheel electric power collector can turn kinetic energy into electricity. This religious behavior can help the less developed areas to get some electric power to improve their daily life quality. And the public infrastructure there like schools and hospitals will be better.
