1. thx for this. i love it. brains over braun.


i want to do some small wind on my home. i live a few blocks from lake mich, we either have strong sun or strong winds.
i want to build a cylindrical turbine out of junk metal.
and since i have hot water heat, i want to do hot water based solar. they tell me it doesnt get hot enough to do my system any good, but i dont believe them.
w a heat exchanger, i could have air as well.

but rooftop turbines made of recycled plastic seem like they would be a great answer. they make park benches around here out of milk jugs.
but those clear drink bottles ought to be able to be unzipped, and zipped back into a turbine that would be both light and tough. and flexible. cuz rigid is not necessary.

very interesting stuff you post hatrack. i am a fan.
