    My Dynamo Light is now on Thingiverse

    I posted my dynamo light mechanism on thingiverse. Included are all files plus a readme and wiring diagram.

    I like it. I'm just a little confused as to what it is used for.

    It's a crank light. You turn the crank and it lights up the LEDs. It's a DIY version of things like this.

    Yes its is a DIY crank light. The difference between this light and the purchased lights is that my light doesn't use capacitors to store power. The power goes straight to the LED's and this unit only produces light when cranked (either direction).

    Another feature of this light is it can be gravity driven with a #8 ball chain and a weight attached to the chain. Here is a video of the 1st prototype being chain driven. http://youtu.be/XNj1datjETQ

    The gentleman that sells the Dynamos doesnt seem to be selling them right now. I have a bunch of the dynamos if anyone is interested.
