Firewinder – wind powered outdoor decorative LED light

Firewinder1

Firewinder is a 100% wind powered decorative LED light fixture, kind of like a light chime instead of a wind chime. OK, so the illumination it produces from the wind is not going to keep your yirt lit properly, but watching the twirling spiral effect may help you forget about the power bills sitting on the hall table. The faster it blows, the brighter it glows. Golly. £99.95.

 The performance of Firewinder’s efficient aerodynamics, contact-less generator and utilisation of the latest LED technology enable the product to harness a light breeze (from wind speeds of 3mph) in order to begin creating the desired lighting effect. Firewinder’s unique design harnesses the wind, no matter which direction it blows from. Firewinder’s soft flowing edges were specially designed to make the product safe to use in close (but not touching!) proximity to people and animals (unlike conventional wind turbines, which use sharp, fast turning blades and mostly only work when the wind blows in a particular direction).
