Cuban home made Micro-hydroelectric 

By  Alexis Martin

On my past blog about Cuban ingenuity I talked about how my uncle Jesus creates tools to make furniture and then creates beautiful furniture with those tools.

Today, I want to share with you his video that represents the same survival and inventive spirit you will find in the Cuban people today.

What would you do if you live in a mountain of Cuba without electricity and want to listen to the radio or watch TV?

It’s simple! Make your own hydro-electric power with an old bicycle dynamo, an old windshield wiper motor and a transformer. This is a very rudimentary use of basic laws of physics and electricity.

We all know the old saying “necessity is the mother of invention” but to what level? It is fair to ask the same question once again. How do they manage to do so much with so little?

I hope you enjoy it the video below.

I'm a first-generation Cuban immigrant. I have a passion for everything Cuba. I love to share our culture and my expertise in the world-famous Guayabera Shirt. On December 18, 2002, I sold my first Cuban Guayabera shirt online. I fell in love with the process and the fact that this is a business, you always have to be willing to learn. Many things have changed since then, new software services, new concepts. At Mycubanstore.com, we had been able to ride different market waves. We are always humbled and grateful for this privilege of building a future in this great country.
