Magic Drumstick
Magic Drumstick

Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the least developed regions of the world, with shortage of electricity for basic living. As a traditional musical instrument, African Drum is used for usual practice or entertainment in addition to festivals of sacrifice. When it is used, the Magic Drumstick transforms the kinetic energy to electric energy via the technology of generating electricity by cutting magnetic field lines, and the converted electric energy can provide lighting for the people there and therefore provide convenience for their lives.
