Burt, super cool idea by the way, I've just watched your kickstarter as well the drop kicker videos.
The drive idea was what initially came to me as well. That way you could increase the speed to exactly what you need to charge the battery with the right gearing. The other thing i was wondering was if you'd thought of fully submerging the impeller into the water, completely beneath the floating platform to get the max. water through the impleller? Have you completely modeled this in Fusion, or just the Impeller so far? Lastly I'm wondering if you've seen the SolePower project? similar concept just using your footsteps and the insole of your shoe. We've got a good relationship with this team so, might be interesting to pick their brains as well if you thought that might help you? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/764467377/solepower-power-by-walking-0
Thanks, Let me know,

Dane Roth:
Yes, thanks, we are in the early stages of design and could use input from those whom have walked this path before. We do have experience with much larger turbines in our previous life as Hydrovolts. But this much smaller device is a whole different animal. We do want the most efficient prop design, but the goal is not to create the most power but just enough to charge the battery and still remain compact enough be portable. We are also looking at a speed increaser, perhaps a planetary drive. Any thoughts? thx...

Hi Dane, hey are you working on a Hydrobee impeller that is a battery charger that uses a stream or river to generate electricity? Let me know if you're trying to do some design changes to make it more efficient or higher power generating. Looks really great.
