Considering power sources


Materials: Power deck with power management and wired cards removed.

Objective: Come up with unusual ideas for power options beyond the wall socket by considering all possibilities.


  • Display battery, mechanical generator and energy harvesting cards on the table in columns.
  • Consider your project. Look at the mechanical generator and energy harvesting columns first, and pick up options that are possibilities.
  • Place each option on the table one by one, and consider which battery options might match it.
  • Discuss scenarios, take notes.

Advanced variation: Look through the power generation cards for ways to modify voltage into what you need.
