The Power Drum / Drum

The Power Drum
The Power Drum

This design mainly focuses on the lack of electricity supply at night in poor areas in Africa. The lack of electricity has caused great inconvenience to peoples evening life. The product uses a simple energy conversion principle. During the day, people produce mechanical energy when they clap drums. Through the energy conversion device, the mechanical energy is converted into electrical energy and stored. At night, electric energy can be used as a lighting device. By combining African drums with power generators, people can have a bright night.
