wind energy plant

Windflock is a wind energy system based on a modular structure. An open and flexible „add-on“ system made of mini windmills, which works like a LEGO puzzle. These mini windmills can be connected to each other as often as desired and set a 3D structure that resembles a crystal composition. Windflock may be located between buildings or over them being part of the whole construction.

It is really easy to connect the windmills. They are made of standard bars and joints that work like LEGO pieces. These joints can have two, three, four or five holes, depending on how many bars the user wants to connect in order to create the  desired structure. Windflock works like a standar windmill. The turbines turn the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical or electrical energy that can be used for power delivery.

Outdoor water tap

Water taps installed in the garden or in publically accessible areas may be opened by unauthorised persons. As a consequence, the water may run unintentionally over longer periods of time. This not only leads to unnecessary water consumption but may also cause greater water damage. There are solutions available in the market that try to solve the problem with a lock or lockable cover design. However, these solutions are extremely unpractical for the following reasons:
a) You always have to carry the key with you.
b) Handling and utilization are tedious.
This is why Locko uses a combination lock to remedy the stated disadvantages. It offers a user-friendly and practical solution that is very easy to implement, because the lock mechanism is located in the handle.

There are programs that enable generating music with the computer. They are frequently controlled via keyboard or mouse. They are unsuitable for generating the sounds of brass instruments though because these are controlled by the strength and length of blowing in addition to the fingers. Digipipe therefore also takes into consideration the blowing to create sound. The sensors measure the duration and strength of the blowing and pass them as electronic signals wireless to the computer or a digital instrument. Parallel entry via keyboard is also possible.
