In many ways, adventuring sets us free, and there are plenty of times that we simply need an escape. The problem with leaving society for a while is that we also forego the luxuries that comes with it. The main one being electricity, and the fact is, we always need our smartphones, or other electrical gadgets. The answer to that can be found in the Nils Ferber Micro Wind Turbine.
Designed to be compact and lightweight, the Micro Wind Turbine features a telescopic design. This makes it super easy to carry.
By pulling the telescopic shaft apart, the Micro Wind Turbine expands. It then uses three tensioned lanyards to keep it in place, and you’re ready to go. In contrast to solar panels, this turbine even works at night for 24-hour charging. It can also be used for lighting, and other electrical needs. Check out the video below.
To make it more efficient, this turbine can capture wind from all directions. It also generates power on the vertical axis, and comes with a built-in USB port. This turbine can produce a constant output of 5 Watts at 18 km/h.
It’s only a concept at the moment, but they do have a working prototype. Let’s hope for its release soon!
