"Every time you hit the drum kit, the turbines spin, which makes energy to charge your phone."
I thought the turbine could be put to good effect by connecting up all of the drums and feeding all of the air generated to the generator.
I have been researching micro wind turbines and I found an inexpensive nicely designed and efficient model turbine.
Many plastic skinned drums like in a drum kit have holes in them to let the pressure out when you hit them and this helps to make the drum sound good. When you hit a drum the air escapes in a puff and I thought we could use this to drive a turbine and generate electricity.
I found away to secure the turbines onto the underside of the drums using spring loaded plate hangers. I used galvanised steel builders strapping to create a bridge mount for the turbines at the correct distance and placement from the hole in the drumskins with a special adaptation for the bass drum using some rope
The frame was cut out to accommodate the drums. To complete the project, the rotating music notes needed to rotate in keeping with the ...
