Build a Windmill

I made this WindMill using MicroDuino’s 8 in 1 Itty bitty city, mCookie kit. The motor is activated when the microphone hears a noise. Then the motor turns the windmill blades.

Uses of windmills : Windmills convert kinetic energy from wind into mechanical power, which in turn can be used for pumping water, or a generator can further convert it into electricity.

Every time I see a Windmill, it reminds me of Cervantes’ Don Quixote fighting a windmill thinking it is a giant!
