wind powered streetlights

Here’s an interesting wind powered streetlight from the Panasonic Center in Tokyo that I found on hyperexperience blog run by Leonardo Bonanni of MediaLab. I’m a big fan of using these Vertical Axis Wind Turbines for integrating into urban skylines when traditional propellers often seem too dramatic.

    i like how it looks like a misssile. ITs different and unique to me. The middle piece twixs so that pretty unique and cool.

  2. Is cost an issue? We have a discussion going regarding this product in our forum titled “Alternative Energy in the Landscape”. The product is quite attractive, but does cost become a factor? And what about vandalism?
