If you recall, I reviewed the Hymini which is a personal wind powered battery.  If it is up to one Philippe Starck, we’ll all have personal wind turbines powerful enough to power 20% – 60% of our homes energy.  The device, or mini wind turbine will cost about $650 and will supposedly be available later this year from manufacture Pramac.

Starck, a long time designer, recently had an epiphany stating ““Everything I designed was unnecessary…and I am ashamed of this fact”  As a result he created the personal wind turbine, or what he calls Democratic Ecology.

My thoughts?  It looks like this guy might be smoking something because it appears to be an egg beater.  But hey, I’m no designer.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
