This whimsical art sculpture, by Art Energy Design, is also a renewable energy display. By incorporating small solar cells into the leaves, and building a small wind turbine out of the flower petals, it is able to store enough energy to keep itself lit by LEDs at night. I can’t imagine that it is technically a very efficient generator of power, however the idea of a rotating flower/wind turbine is neat. Next, I’m hoping for some solar-powered singing flowers a la Alice in Wonderland.
