Coming this September - a nifty little device that supposedly can generate 20-60% of the energy needed to power a home. The designer is Philippe Starck, the manufacturer is Pramac and the selling price is a not totally crazy...

...400 euros, or approximately $633.

Introduced this year at Milan's Greenergy Design show, the "Democratic Ecology" windmill design is elegant and the concept of personal mini windmills providing renewable wind energy to homes is so engaging - we can't wait to find out more.

We have a few big questions right off the top - for instance, what else will be required to convert the power or attach it to the grid and what will the installation costs be like? But for now, we are intrigued and look forward to more info on the product in the coming months.
