A rollercoaster which charges your phone

Apr 6, 2018 United Kingdom
Kinetic energy includes everything from the g-force and vibrations of the ride to the screams of the users. The devices fitted on to the train's carriages capture this energy before converting into electrical energy, which is stored in a power management unit throughout the day. This unit is then removed from the carriages by staff and deposited into the on-site mobile charging point, allowing guests to charge their mobile phone.
