French designer Philippe Starck has unveiled two micro wind-power turbines called “Revolutionair” aimed at domestic use.

Often the big wind turbines do not fit into the scheme of things if you are thinking to install one at your living place. Just to ensure that you go on with your intent, Philippe Starck unveiled two wind-turbine designs that are helix-shaped and quadrangular, and are too sleek to bedeck any abode. Dubbed as Revolutionair, these wind turbines can be put in gardens, roofs or yards.

We have to help people to produce energy, to be part of the fight. Energy should not be a punishment, we should create a desire (among people to produce it).

And this is exactly what these wind turbines do. Where the quadrangular 400W WT model generates 400W of power, the helicoidal 1KW WT one produces 1 KW of power. Italy’s Pramac will produce these wind turbines and will make them available for around 2,500 Euros (quadrangular) and 3,500 Euros (helicoidal).
