Tesla turbine + shake flashlight


From the MAKE Flickr pool

MrfixitRick finds a new use for his CD Tesla Turbine, this time generating light via water pressure –

The Shake Flashlight Shaker is seen mounted on top of the Tesla CD Turbine, which is running on faucet water pressure. The CD magnetic coupling acts as a crankshaft with a copper wire connecting rod to the magnet in the stripped down shake flashlight. A second shakelight is clamped next to the first and is able to charge wirelessly by simple magnetic coupling of the neodymium magnets.
