Windpax portable, collapsible wind turbine

From: Phil Shapiro

When Bob Dylan was writing the song Blowin' in the Wind, he didn't have the words to describe 
a portable, collapsible wind turbine that powers an open source file sharing LibraryBox, so he 
used the language of poetry to describe this. Amazingly prescient.

The efficiency of this kind of wind turbine is low, but so is the cost. 


Although not a toy, this kind of device can spark an interest in wind 
energy in our youth and could also power a LibraryBox or maybe a node on 
a mesh network.
