“Duh” technology

November 24, 2009

I love this concept – these two architects are looking for ways to harness energy which is already being created in already-existing structures. Behold the Revolution Door, a sort of revolving-door low-speed/high torque turbine, which can produce enough energy to power over a dozen lightbulbs for more than a day!

In dense urban areas with many large buildings with high foot traffic, this could be a crazy-cool development with some further refinement.

      Sure thing-I am glad you enjoyed it! I love ideas like this, too-the ones that everyone who hears about them says, “Geez! Why didn’t I think of that?”
