WindBelt Technology – Good Vibrations

Young inventor offers a new approach to wind-based energy generation. WindBelt technology is an alternative to the ugly, costly and complex wind turbines –. Instead of the conventional focus on “rotation”, this new wind-based power generator capitalizes on “vibration”, making use of a physical effect known as “Aeroelastic Flutter”. Aeroelastic flutter is the name for what happens when air passing over a thin strip of material creates frequencies that translate into vibrations and in the Windbelt’s case, into energy.
