Windmill actuator story board

Storyboard Text

  • I wish I didn't have to keep getting up early to turn the windmill off!
  • Problem: Windmill users have to travel long distances to manually turn operate windmills
  • I think i'll have to replace the windmill with a solar pump that's automatic....
  • Compromise: Often users replace windmills with other forms of infrastructure which is automatic
  • Oh wait!... Solar panels don't work at night! That'd mean I would only be able to pump water during the daytime.
  • Problem: Solar pumping infrastructure doesn't work when there's NO SUN!
  • Imagine if I could send my windmill a text message from my phone and tell it to turn off or on by itself!!! Then I wouldn't waste my day turning windmills on and off by hand!
  • Solution: Keep existing Windmill and upgrade operation to automatic
  • Problem: SOLVED! actuator automates windmill, Thereby eliminating manual operation
  • Why don't you put an SMS actuator on the windmill? Then you won't need to replace the windmill AND you won't have to waste your day turning it on and off!
  • Life's easy now! I just send an SMS from my phone and the windmill turns off or on. Simple, quick and easy!
