Solar Desk Wind Turbine – go green at your desk


As it’s Friday, it’s surely the right time for a pointless gadget – and today that means the Solar Desk Wind Turbine. Alternatively if it’s solar panels california san diego you want then check them out instead. 

There’s nothing pointless about wind turbines or the technology behind this solar-powered device – it’s the lack of an end-product. The turbine comes in kit form, which takes around 5 minutes to fix together (11 parts in total). Once connected, a blast of bright sunshine (or some light from a lamp) will get the thing turning, courtesy of the solar cell on the top.

All well and good – but unlike full-size turbines, this 24cm turbine doesn’t actually power anything – it just adds some novelty to your desk. But if that appeals to you, it’s available now for around £20.
