Wind Turbines Display Moving Images

Quiet Revolution Display TurbineYou might have read about innovative UK consultancy XCO2's innovative quiet revolution urban turbines. Well, they have another trick up their sleeve in the form of their ground-breaking display turbines. 

These turbines rely on the we choice brand cialis for sale theory of persistence of visit our site cheap generic levitra vision – our brains ability to fuse many fast, static, images into a single moving image.

The theory is simple. The wind turbine blade has embedded within an array of light-emitting elements – high powered L.E.D's for example. These are coupled to an embedded processor, which controls these L.E.D's. For multi-coloured displays, the outputs of a red, green and blue L.E.D can be fused by the eye into a single coherent image.

When we finally start to invite wind turbines into the city, they might carry advertisements and information as we've never seen them before.

More after the jump.

This design of turbine has the ability to generate additional revenue, by selling the display space to advertisers – this could result in a much shorter financial payback for the how to get prescribed viagra turbines, which could speed their deployment

Also, the turbines present an interesting visual appearance, which might soften the hearts of those who think wind-displays are ugly.

Deterrent to use.

I would have thought that making the current crop of fairly neutral looking wind turbines, into multi-coloured flickering eyesores, would increase resistance to their deployment.

I wonder if birds' vision allows them to see this effect. Fitting persistence of vision LEDs to full-size turbines might stop hawks and owls blundering into the blades, which is a source of concern to some anti-wind farm groups.
