Super-proficient designer Philippe Starck is working on a new line of products he's named "Democratic Ecology" products. Produced by Pramac, the first commercially available design in the series is a miniature rooftop wind-turbine (at left) that is said to produce up to 80% of a home's energy. The blades are made of the same transparent plastic that Starck is famous for which makes them nearly invisible on a roof...

The turbine will be introduced in Europe this fall, and in the United States early next year. It is priced between $780 and $1,250. The next item in the series from Pramac is a solar panel. Check it out: And Now, to Try and Catch the Wind.
