First Place


The Micro Dynamo

Team Members

Thomas D. Pate (Mechanical Engineering),
Moss Shimek (Mechanical Engineering)

This is an ultra-compact human-powered battery charger capable of recharging cell phones, digital cameras, and providing energy to soldiers in the field with a simple cranking or pulling motion. The Micro Dynamo is capable of rapidly capturing human energy that continues to recharge your batteries long after one stops cranking or pulling. The MicroDynamo fits into the palm of a hand, snaps to the back of a cell phone, and can easily be adapted to be powered by biking, walking, or with the extension of an arm.
