The windsock generator


This project is a try to convert a computer fan into a wind turbine. Used a reverse way, a computer fan become a small generator. The object is studied in order to channel the wind in the direction of the fan. The fabric, in a cone design, creates a venturi effect. In order to follow different wind directions, the windsock is mounted on bearings.
