Scarcity of energy in India is a prime mover for newer innovations in this sector. Presently, the product that improves the lifestyle of people is much on the demand.
Every invention has some connection to either students or young professionals, due to an untapped mind of these generations.

Chandrasekhar inspired by Michel Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction and created a fan that generates enough energy to power a light bulb and charges the mobiles.
“Whenever we turn on the fan it generates electricity with the help of the mounted device. At night we can use this to light bulbs and during the day we can charge a backup battery on our mobile phone," Chandrasekhar said.
To create this device, he used three simple magnets, two copper foils, and two plastic plates attached to the top of a running fan that costs him just Rs. 2000!
He thought of this invention in two weeks and built in just two days! The product was recently exhibited in a technological conference ‘MeltingPot2020’ Innovation Summit 2016, an initiative focused on innovation. (Source: TOI)
