The Concept

To see if it is possible to generate enough energy to move a bicycle using wind and solar power and have it move by itself based on this energy source. One person has achieved this using 3 volts and it is called the Solar Power Bicycle. More can be learned at:

Here are the results of our current test runs using a stepper motor. Videos test results coming soon. .....

The basic layout is a stepper motor is connected to a fan which revolves generating power to charge a battery or turn a motor. On this initial test run using 1 stepper motor and 1 solar well we achieved little over 2 volts. Running this energy into a super capacitor helps increase the amperage. We are currently working on circuits that utilize a transformer to help boost the amperage even further.

The higher the amperage, the reduced time it takes to charge the battery.

Another idea is when the bike is standing still, solar and wind energy charge a nicad or lithium ion battery. Upon moving again, the energy is dishcharged from the battery into a supercapacitor at the push of a button, allowing for rapid speed. After the supercapacitors have been drained, the energy than goes from the wind and solar to the motor as a form of pedal assist.

Device Potentialities 
Because we have now crossed the 5 volt threshold (as of late July 2014), which is the voltage required for charging IPODS and Micro Heating Elements, the functionality of the device is greatly increased.  Here are the things that this device can now do:
1: Turn a small 3 volt powered CPU fan, whose airflow flows over a 5 volt micro heating element to create a heating fan that can be inserted into a sleeping bag or tent. This makes it practical for surviving temperature extremes where batteries are too heavy to carry and can fail due to low temperatures.  Because the prototype outputs 9 volts, this leaves plenty of voltage to provide a heating fan for use in extreme evironments. 
2: Power or recharge portable screwdrivers, which average 3 volts.
3: Turn an electric motor that is attached to a bicycle.
4: Charge super capacitors
5: The oil burning lamps are detachable, making them available for light and or heat.
6: Charge deep cycle marine batteries overnight, which can be used as on demand power backup batteries.
Due to the compact size and lightweight, it may be possible to fit this device with a drone that runs on no more than between 15 and 20 volts D.C., this means a drone could stay airborne for approximately 30 hours. If drone engines continue to become more powerful, this may be possible.  
Major Advantages of the Device
1: No Noisy Exhaust or pollution
2: Works without Sunlight or Wind 
3: Weather resistant
4: Deliberately made with no sensitive/delicate electronics, allowing complete functionality in all forms of weather extremes.  Because thermoelectric Elements are water resistant, the device can suffer temporary submerges in water and still remain fully functional after allowing for it to dry out.  

For truly independant elecctrical power make your own alcohol from table sugar or Cattails or Wheat, Corn, Rye, Barley, Milo, Rice, and use alcohol lamps to warm the device and it will cost you nothing to make your own electricity in any weather environment.  No sun or wind are necessary.
The device is due to be released for public use before December of 2014.

July 28th, 2014:
Voltage potential of the device now increased to 12 volts D.C. continuous with the size of the device measuring 2 foot length by 3 feet height.  When 2 of these units are wired together, we will have 24 volts, enough to power a 24 volt bicycle motor continuously.  The best motors are the AmpCo motors, which deliver high torque at voltages as low as 12 volts.  Additional Motor reviews can be found at:

As of July 18th, 2014, the device is up to 8 to 10 volts D.C, with enough increased amperage to turn a motor small enough and powerful enough to power a bicycle. The device full measurements are approx 2 foot high by 1 foot depth and a weight of 25 pounds. With a second module attached with solar panel and stepper motor generator we are looking at a total output of 50 volts or more.

Below video shows voltage increase during late July, 2014.

The information below contains ROUGH scientific notes collected from videos, circuit diagrams and the like and which are being used to construct our new propulsion device.  These notes are intended to help give a general idea of how these circuits behave so that they may be improved upon. After reviewing all these notes, a parts list has been assembled consisting of over 40 parts.
