Lighting The Wind

Another piece of eco product news for you, one that is not only environmentally friendly (at least in the way that it’s powered), but looks cool too.

Firewinder

The Firewinder, also known as the Original Windlight, is a decorative and completely wind-powered outdoor light from the UK-based Firewinder Company that transforms the ebb and flow of the wind into an upwardly spiraling glowing light. Wind from any direction spins a small turbine on the helix-shaped device, thereby lighting up LEDs along its outer edge.

With light winds of at least 3 mph, the Firewinder emits a dim glow, but as winds increase, so too does the brilliance of its light. In variable winds, the result is a pulsing, twisting glow that appears to float in mid-air. The Firewinder can be hung or mounted to a post or wall, and it’s made of recyclable materials; no batteries or wires are required. It will be available starting late summer in the UK priced at £99.95.
