'Mecaro Co. is the maker of the new wind power generator, which stands about 18 meters tall and is called the Magnus turbine. What makes the windmill — the first of its kind developed in Japan — unusual is that it does not feature propeller blades. Instead, it has five spinning cylinders with spiral fins.'
looks playskool. Possibly it's because we don't have much wind generation where I live, but I've never seen or heard of one like this before I read the article.
