I'm currently doing a BTEC Level 3 Engineering course at college.
One of our assignments is a project. I have to build and analyse something.
The problem is I'm really stumped for ideas.
Originally I was gonna build a shift light for my car but it's a little too complex. I also though about harvesting the wasted energy during braking to charge a battery (again too complex for me).
Does anyone have any ideas?
I would like it to be related to cars (i love cars) but it's not essential.
Other people are making: Metal Detector, Guitar Foot Pedal, ToolBox etc...
Ideally it would be something that I could reuse once I'm finished with it at college (I have to pay for the materials and tools to make it), otherwise it will be a waste of money and I'm not wasting money on a college project that I'll never use.
Thanks for your help. It's most appreciated.
BTW I have 9 weeks until I have to give a presentation on it.

You could look at Aerodynamics where you could build simple models with paper/card aeorfoils and look at downward force and drag using a weighing machine. You would need to fashion some airflow source and depending on your college, you could compare output from a CFD package with what you actually see.
