This TINY wind turbine could power your phone. Actually hundreds of these tiny little “micro” wind turbines can generate enough electricity to power your smartphone. How cool is this? Imagine the applications for something like this for off grid use. Imagine large sheets of these little wind turbines attached to the outer walls of your off grid cabin. This means the walls could generate power as well as your roof, which would be covered in solar panels.

This would be a phenomenal wind/solar energy platform which could generate more than enough to power your home.
