R2B2 / Kitchen appliances with alternativ drive concept


R2B2 is a set of alternative powered household appliances which get powered by rotating a fly wheel with muscular strength. The so stored energy can be used by connecting different machines on special plugs to power machines directly or to wind up spring driven motors to use the energy at another time. As an example there is a kitchen machine, a hand blender and a coffee mill.
Electricity is not necessary anymore. That means no electrical waste, a load less use of resources, independency of the electrical power grid and almost no noise during use.
