H20 water-powered radio

Scientists claim to have created the world’s first water-powered radio. It’s inventor, Vivian Black, who helped turn the Wind-Up Radio into a global success in the 1990s, says his water-proof radio is powered by the motion of water flowing into a shower.

The H20 water-powered radio clips onto the water pipe that runs up to a shower head. Using micro turbine technology, the radio is powered by the water pressure running up a pipe, says its inventor.

“Having seen huge success with the commercialisation of the Wind-Up Radio, we were constantly looking at how further innovations could be made in the radio sector . Creating the micro turbine technology, which allows the radio to operate solely through the flow of water, was the key to our new innovation,” the managing director of Tango Group, the radio’s manufacturer, said.
