Wind Turbine That Flaps Like A Bee


Inspired by the wing movements of bees, Green Wavelength have designed the XBee Wind Turbine, the prototype of which they recently showcased. Green Wavelength have said that they are “committed to finding ways of applying nature’s solutions to our man-made energy problems,” and the small, 19-foot wind turbine was designed with inspiration from the movement of bumblebees, hummingbirds, and dragonflies.

The wings are made of aluminium and carbon fiber and rotate to and fro (like bees, hummingbirds and dragonflies) to produce wind power suitable for homes and small businesses.
