Hummingbird Wings Inspire More Efficient Turbine

Hummingbird Wings Inspire More Efficient Turbine
An innovative new turbine inspired by hummingbird wings could prove to be more efficient—and more attractive—than conventional designs.

Developed by the startup Tyer Wind, the hummingbird-inspired turbine is still in the early testing phase, but the team is optimistic. The turbine features a pair of wing-shaped blades that move in a flapping motion to generate energy on both the upstroke and the down, offering a high energy output. The turbine’s unique shape can also resist high winds, and the design can be applied to both homes and industries.
