Fan-Powered or Motor-Powered LED for Nozzle

I've been wondering for a while whether the energy from can be harvested from the nozzle fan or the x motor to power an LED.

Since I suck at even understanding electricity, I'm unable to figure out how I can even "calculate whether there is enough energy to make this feasible?  I got that part of this idea by seeing the video clip by Jo Prusa showing a printable rotating thingy that he seems to just slapped onto the end of the motor shaft...

Anybody wants to help or participate in the project?

In the end, if it's feasible, what I want to do then is design the STL for what is needed, figure the rest of the parts (What LED, cables, resistors, etc) and package all this and either sell it or post it up free on ThingyVerse.
