A generator is tool that converts kinetic energy into electricity, through the use of magnets which is surrounded by magnetic fields. As a magnet starts turning its magnetic fields collide with a coil that surrounds the magnet. Which induces current, which is electricity.

You can make electromagnets out of it. You can make magnetic shielding out of it, for rapidly changing magnetic fields. You can store energy in its field. You can use it to make transformers and motors.

some senses used by animals for migration are visual cues, solar navigation, magnetic fields, star navigation, and polarized light. There has been much evidence that magnetic fields play an important role in navigation.
