A crash course in changing the world.
I do boxing and we spend a lot of energy on skipping so I figured there must be an opportunity to exploit this somehow to create energy.
Then my mind went to the next level of design - how?
As you can see below, a boxing skipping rope is made of heavy leather rope and sturdy handles.
My design would see a dynamo being installed into the handles where the rope connects. This would spin as the skipper skips, creating kinetic energy that could be captured. I'm not sure how one would make use of the energy but perhaps it could provide enough energy to charge a cellphone after 15 minutes of skipping? I don't know...but enough scientific research might make this a possibility one day....
