Bio-Inspired Wind Turbine

Bumblebee Inspired Wind Prototype 1

The Bumblebee Inspired Wind Turbine can be mounted vertically (as depicted above) or horizontally. The prototype is used for testing and optimizing various components of the system like the figure eight motion drive and wing airfoil designs.

Our goal is to develop systems for use in urban areas requiring back up power such as schools, emergency services & municipalities.

Here is one artist’s concept of a production model.
