I've just been directed to this video clip of a new idea on an alternative idea on energy generation.

Now if this could be created on a much larger scale, aerolastic flutter I think, could change the way the world looks at wind generated energy. What are your thoughts?

This is very cool.

A few years ago I saw a vertical version of this, where the vibrating strings made some fantastic sounds.

It was simply wind blowing through holes in the box containing the strings, which could be tuned.

The one I saw was about 6 feet tall and it did not take a lot of wind to get the strings humming, but the maker of this rig had not thought of it as an alternative energy devise, but simply something that made amazing sounds.

This would eliminate the turbine and make for a very simple system which could be produced at a very low price.
