Personal micro wind powered generator

''Young American inventor Shawn Fayne has designed a wind power device that does not have most of these disadvantages: the windbelt. It’s the first micro-wind machine that does not try to miniaturise the concept of a big turbine, but instead takes a completely different view; the machine does not include any mechanically moving parts, but makes use of vibration.
