ALL THIS CAN CHANGE!!
Highly effective fun! And ingenious!
Easy to operate
Costs of maintenance minimal
Capable of producing up to 1,400 liters of water per hour at 16 rpm from a depth of 40 meters
Effective up to a depth of 100 meters
NOTE: a typical hand pump installation is not able to compete with the PlayPump system of delivery rate, even with substantial effort.BENEFIS OF THE PLAYPUMP
Pros fun! And ingenious!
Access to clean water is a key step in targeting the larger issues of health, education, gender, and economic issues.
Access to clean water allows families to live longer, healthier lives.
Children are playing
Children are staying in school instead of fetching water all day.
“Women benefit too!!
PlayPump system can increase awareness of how to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS through billboard messages.
Economic BenefitsAdditional Benefits of PlayPump
PlayPump has successfully installed over 700 PlayPump water systems in South Africa, benefiting more than 1 million people.
In 2006, PlayPumps increased the number of PlayPumps in South Africa, extending to Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland, and Zambia.
By 2010, combined efforts of Playpumps and its partners will bring clean water to nearly 10 million through the additional installation of 4000 pumps in schools and villages in 10 sub-Saharan Africa.PROGRESS AND FUTURE OF THE PLAYPUMP
Creating green gyms where people pay their membership fees as usual, but swipe their membership cards before and after they use the machine for their daily workout.
Machines linked to large central generator, so if you are really working out you will be generating much more energy than is needed to power the machine display.
Idea of program: swipe cards monitor the time spent on the machine and determine if you were a net user or contributor of energy to the gym facility. At the end of the year, a rebate would be given to members in proportion to how much energy they generated for the gym.Simple things we can do to save Planet Earth
Graeme Bathurst, of independent energy consultancy TNEI, notes:
A yo-yo is just a rotor that needs some electromagnetic coils and a permanent magnet and viola you have a portable power generator.
Just install firmware, flash drive, a circular lithium ion battery, and wireless broadcaster and you have an amazing, longest lasting MP3 player in world.Design Philosophy
