Eole concept watch with turbine bezel lets you blow for the time

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2011

Is your own watch feeling a bit too practical? Not silly enough? Well, if that’s the case, check out the Eole watch concept from designer Julien Moise. This watch is powered by blown air, displaying the time only when you want to see it, thereby saving battery power.

It’s easy to say that this watch blows, but the truth is it’s a neat concept to conserve battery life. Even so, you will look pretty damn silly blowing for the time. The only thing that could make it worse would be if it made a kazoo type noise with each blow. There’s also a weather indicator and alarm function.

windcube-sbGenerating power by free methods is the Holy Grail for the green power movement. For consumers it could one day mean that we get power for our homes and gadgets for free from the sun or the wind. Wind power is controversial because the massive wind turbines are ugly and make the area where they are installed look bad to some people.

A company called Green Energy Technologies has announced a new wing-generating power plant that is designed to be fitted onto the roof of a building. The WindCube can be installed in singles or as a pair. A single unit generates 60kW of power while a dual unit generates 120kW.

Aliens to UK: We hate wind power, consider this a warningSomething caused this wind turbine in the UK to break. It could have been any of a million things, all very rational. But residents of the village of Conisholme, in Lincolnshire are having none of that. They know that aliens did it. And they don’t need any stinkin’ Men In Black, Mulder & Scully, Leonard Nimoy, Agents from Majestic or Alien corpses to prove it.

They claim that they saw bright lights in the sky “like an octopus’ tentacles” right around the time that the blades were damaged. Others claim that the damage was the result of a “cow-sized ice chunk” and even a “robot stealth bomber” was blamed. According to The Guardian, the mysterious lights were most likely from fireworks being shot off for one of their 80 year old residents. But what are you going to believe, something rational, or stories about aliens in robot stealth bombers?
