We are always looking at ways of improving the kit and of course for sponsors. If you have any ideas then please do get in touch via the contact form.
So what is next?
We have new stickers for participants and a mended bike (after the Big Bang Fair), but there are still a lot of things that we would like to do with the kit in the near future. we have applied for funding for some of these projects so watch this space.
New Water Columns.
We are planning an upgrade on the water columns with some special LED adaptations. This will see the hydrogen separated from the oxygen and an overall look of three columns rather than 2 columns with concentric hydrogen and oxygen.
New Feedback System
We are considering a more physical 5 point emoji feedback concept rather than the online form. This will involve giving all the participants a token which they can deposit into one of the 5 towers provided to register their satisfaction.
A Thermal Camera
A Hydrogen flame is, of course, invisible. A Thermal camera will be a really neat addition to help to visualise the flame and drive discussion about the flame temperature >1000 ºC.
The first of our frictionless bikes is now on order. This will enable us to produce more hydrogen and have more time with the flame on.
Our new banners have arrived. We now have 2 beautiful banners for TheHydrogenBike. This will make us look really good at science shows. We also have business cards printed to give out to people alongside the stickers for bike participants.
