Wind Powered Cars and More!

A while back, I did a fun roundup on wind powered cars and thought it was time to revisit the topic. So, how far have we come in the last year and a half?

Sadly, not very!

Sure, a wind-powered car completed a drive across Australia which is intriguing, but the car itself is pretty impractical as is the kite that powers it! 😉

And there’s a solar powered Wii (no wind-powered wii, alas!).

There’s also this hybrid streetlight powered by both wind and sun (an awesome idea!)

But, truthfully, I was really disappointed by the lack of ingenuity my search turned up. It seemed like it was mostly rehashes of old ideas instead of any trailblazing. Considering that it’s so easy to build your own windmill at home, I was expecting more people to have created something useful and interesting. Alas! Looks like all those breakthrus in green energy still have yet to come to pass.

Have you seen anything extraordinary powered by wind power lately? Email me and tell me all about it!
