This looks pretty neat if they can get the cost down I'd grab at least one of these.

Very cool. Not available for another year though. But a good find, something to keep tabs on. I downloaded the FAQs, will be reading them shortly.

chris:
Down to 2 mph? That's a breakthrough of epic proportions.

Greenhorn:
I saw this on featured on Beyond Tomorrow.  Looks very cool - picks up wind from any direction without having to make any adjustments.  I'm definitely putting this on my wish list.

chris:
I saw the Turby on some show, maybe Beyond Tomorrow, but it has the same drawback as many conventional turbines, it isn't effective till it gets above X miles per hour, and X is usually above the average wind speed in most parts of the country. Conventional ones are about 7 mph, and the Turby is about 9 mph. Most of the country doesn't get an average above 7 mph.
