The Clockwork Radio
created by 'Trevor Baylis'
This extremely clever 'wind-up radio' was developed by the British inventor 'Trevor Baylis' for Third World countries where affordable energy is scarce or non-exsistent. This radio uses no batteries and does not need any electricity to run it. It is powered by an internal clockwork generator, which when fully wound up provides enough electricity for long periods.
The clockwork product is not a new invention. The Victorians used this mechanical system quite extensively. Their clockwork toys incorporated this mechanism. What is innovative is the way in which 'Baylis' has used this simple but effective means of creating electricity to both help the people of the Third World and to develop a product which is selling extensively inWestern Europe.
The radio has been personally endorsed by Nelson Mandella.
