Itz about time somebody rolled out a windmill for you and me, and it took famed designer Philippe Starck coming out of retirement to do it. This simple-looking $633 thingamajig is said to be able to crank out 20-60% of the power needed in a house, but we assume that would be on a day the wind is blowing, and the house in questions occupants dont feel like baking a cake while chilling down the place to 65 degrees.
Weve seen plenty of personal wind turbines before, but this one brings more power at the lowest price point yet. Starcks turbine is looking great, too, decked out in stainless steel, signal orange or crazy transparent style. This is not just some spacey concept, either the new electricity generators will be shipping to everyone in September. Lets just hope its not too noisy, or the neighbors might generate a whirlwind of complaints.
