The Pringles Wind Turbine (a.k.a. Power Leech or Pleech) is an attempt to turn simple items found at the hardware store and elsewhere into a working low-voltage power supply. The Pleech is design to take wind or other air currents (such as from A/C ducts, dryer vents, etc.) and convert that energy into electrical energy using magnets and copper coils.

    I love turbines. We’ve been going over magnetic fields and inducted currents for about a month in my physics ii class… who ever thought i’d be interested throughout a lecture.

    Hmm, while browsing through some different wind turbine related sites i noticed this wind turbine + POV combination:
    Looks like a straightforward (re)make :)
