Democratic Ecology Wind Turbine

Phillippe Starck has made a comeback-and in a green way. His newest design is for a personal wind turbine consumers can mount to their rooftops. The windturbine, named Democratic Ecology, was scheduled to hit the market last September and is said to retail for about $700. Photos of the turbine show a clipless bike pedal shaped object made in three colors-stainless steel, translucent polycarbonate, or bright orange (for those who really want to impress the neighbors). There aren't any details yet about how it is mounted or how it actually works. Seems like a good buy if the wind turbine actually supplies 80% of a homes energy like it says.
