Wind-Powered Generator Project

Seattle Center 2062

The Wind Powered Generator Project is the first in a series of maker projects that we’re planning on completing and displaying at the Seattle Mini Maker Faire this summer. We’re using salvaged metal parts, an old stop sign and a donated treadmill to build the project. The plan is to use a heavy duty tent frame to support the structure and make it portable for temporary and emergency setup in a variety of locations. I’m anxious to see how much power if any it will create or if it will just wind up being a tall kinetic sculpture. If you’re also interested in participating in the project or just curious, come join us by signing up on our Meetup site and check for details when we’ll meet.
