Firewinder: The Wind Powered Light

Marketed as an eco outdoor light, we think the Firewinder is a little bit of a marketing stretch since its 14 LED lights produce the equivalent of a Burning Man attendee with nightsticks spinning around in a drunk induced stupor. But we do give them credit for ingeniously capturing wind power to create energy out of thin air. Watch it action under the jump...

We're imagining this redone as an address display, with the LEDs controlled to display numbers or message while it spins. But for now, the Firewinder remains a solution waiting for a problem, albeit a very mesmerizing one at that.
