generalelectric All the engines may be jetting away now, but the blueprints are still here! If you have access to a 3D printer, you can build your own at home (and even make the box!). Head to http://imgur.com/a/Z3qJX for the how-to! #Avgeek #3dprinting 16h

  •   hayspotter @bandrea21 Everything could run on DC current with a storage capability for the non windy days and it would be free energy plus ad some to the existing grid. You could couple this with solar panels as well. I have many many friends that are living off the grid this way and are hardly leaving a carbon footprint at all. (Not that leaving a carbon footprint really matters in the long run buy hey...) 3w
  •   hayspotter I think about this stuff as a penny saver rather than a keeping Mother Earth habitable forever thing. Bottom line, there is an asteroid headed right for Earth as we speak. Just cause we don't see it doesn't mean it's not there and coming right at us. It will come and it will destroy 98% of the life on Earth unless we devise a way to first catch it and then stop it. We've got a long way to go on that front. 3w
  •   hayspotter I do like to see all the windmills going up though. It creates jobs. Construction jobs, maintenance jobs, etc... I'm just not going to hail them as something beautiful because they're not. 3w
  •   mattmckean Windmills are not economical, they are very very expensive. In addition, outside the cost of constructing and maintaining them, the intermittent energy creates massive transmission challenge, the grids are not designed to handle them. Compare the cost per kWh to conventional power and it becomes nonsensical in most cases. 3w
  •   aviationlovers @generalelectric we are a big fan of General Electric !! Could you guys follow us ? :) 3w
  •   kimarturo I'm a big fan of turbines! 3w
  •   weatover I'm a massive fan of turbines also I have been near one and guess what I have touch one in Bradwell 6d

  •   ivioo I want one! 4w
  •   hayspotter Why not miniaturize these and put them in everyones personal yards in the cities and paint roofs white? I just don't see the beauty of them at all in the wilderness where I grew up. Just makes me sad. 4w
  •   mosbahr Huge fan @ryanwheeler1125, turbinetastic 4w
  •   cbuch1800 People only think turbines are ugly because they r not used to them. If there were more of them, nobody would notice, and if you don't have them, then we will have to leave earth and its landscapes behind. Its very worth having turbines 4w
  •   jioel We have this in ilocos marcos country 4w

  •   maksimsmile @dashiee у тебя неправильное Восприятие моего Восприятия. :) 1mon
  •   dashiee @maksimsmile у меня как раз все в порядке. Ты скинул фотку, я сказала что тоже так снимаю. А потом у тебя начались какие-то проблемы. Так что это ТВОЕ негативное восприятия 1mon
  •   maksimsmile @dashiee помоему проблемы начались у тебя. Удачи с твоим Правильным Восприятием. 1mon
  •   dashiee @maksimsmile еще раз повторяю для тех, кто не умеет читать. Ты скинул фотку, я ответила. И мой ответ ТЫ воспринял негативно. Умей признавать, это первый шаг на пути к решению проблем 1mon
  •   maksimsmile @dashiee а кто сказал что я ответил негативно. Вообщем все с тобой ясно. Мисс завышенное восприятие. 1mon
  •   dashiee @maksimsmile ты воспринял мой ответ негативно потому что попросил не ворчать, а я вовсе не ворчала, ты сам предпочел думать что я ответила негативно, хотя у меня этого и в мыслях не было. Так что свой сарказм себе и адресуй, очень воспитанный и прекрасный человек 1mon

  •   the_gris Love it!! //cc: @markerictrent 2mon
  •   pdxda98 Massive! Superb! 2mon
  •   mack_flynn They DO have a lot in common with Whales!! Actually, they've discovered that perhaps they should resemble whale fins even more! It would appear that all the bumps and ridges on a hump back whale's fins are what make them so fast and streamlined under water. Perhaps these rotors should resemble those! 2mon
