A sweet, dirt cheap electricity generator !!

Great find! Looks similer to the flashlights that are powered when you shake them.

The link has gone dead. Do you have another?

Huh ?? Still works for me ..... it's 2 minute video so maybe that's the problem ?? :dunno:

All I get is a blank white page.
Please explain what is happening

Wind power is being generated.

hope they get the funding to develop that!
but as usual, unless they stumble on an altruistic philanthropist the banks will not give them a penny!

this reminds me of a public patent I once came across while researching an electrolytic, highly efficient Hydrogen/Oxygen seperator 'invented' by a guy in India in the 1980's and abandoned (though he did place his patent in the public domain service). it seems there are a Lot of ideas for new, or simply just off-the-norm, ways of doing things more efficiently.
slowly there is momentum being gained by those who try to improve technology for use by All rather than the elite (like the $100 computer project, which is still going on). one can hope that this new, simpler and (eventually) cheaper form of wind generator will catch on like a brush fire.
the concept also reminds me of ... http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/6431100-fulltext.html (lots of text and no pictures in this link, sorry to everyone under 40, lol)
and what would happen if you could adapt the new wind generator idea and make propellors out of them? would you be able to generate enough electricity to run the propellors after a while? hmm ...
*and the best part for me is that instead of thousands of millions of gawky turbine towers we could now have these things retrofitted to the sides of Every Single Skyscraper In The World -- no reason not to, just slap 'em up on the bulding corners, in sites of aerodynamic turbulence, maybe even 'tune' them so they'd sound really cool when the wind kicked up.
