"Self-powered wheelchair produces electricity for night outing"
Moving unaided on the wheelchair becomes a difficult task for the physically challenged, which becomes more risky during nights.
Adding mobility to the life of the disabled, a bunch of South Korean designers, including Min-Goo Kim, Yun-Jin Chang and Su-Eun Park, has come up with an innovative wheelchair that produces and accumulates electricity, as the disabled move it during the day, to light their way at night.
This not only makes mobility safe for the users, but also produces green energy and supports a green lifestyle.
Featuring LEDs that emit light during night, the wheelchair makes use of magnet that converts the wheel rotation into electricity in the electric plant, while the coil moves power through wires to the switch and LEDs.
Moreover, users may check the gathered electricity on the LCD display located in the center of the each wheel.
