Hello.

Last night, I was thinking about alternative energy. I thought about my crank-powered flashlight-radio. Then I recalled noticing that when a Power functions motor was plugged into an IR-receiver, and the motor is turned, the light on the receiver would turn on. That gave me an idea.

A few mintutes later, and this was the product:

Has this been noted before?

It's not extremely handy, though. You can crank-power almost anything with regular non-electric Technic parts.
It's just another way to remote control a motor.

Nifty, but it's been done before. What this dose demonstrate, though, is that there's practically no difference between an electric motor and generator. They each have the same mechanism (magnets attached to rod inside of electric coils)- one turns electric current into motion, and the other turns motion into electricity. Is you ever see inside a hydro-electric station, you'll find that the turbines look a lot like big motors.

I think you're the first to do this with PFS, though. But I think this could be bad for your motor's health... BUYMORETECHNICLEGO!

My poor, poor motors. I am sorry I have hurt you so.
