Olalekan Salami: .... I guess the stators are meant to redirect the wind ... right ?
Shawn Streit: How much energy did this actually produce for you? Would this be safe for high winds, like in Kansas?
Genaro Tabag: <--- NEW, efficient and multi-purpose gearbox for your fuelless motor and generator.
johni Dough: I am looking to do something like this, can you tell me what sort of alternator you purchased to use on this?
eetrapnoel: So what are some thoughts on replacing the blades shown with more defined airfoils like NACA if keeping the same construction dimensions? (number of blades, cord size, etc.)
Thomas Harrell: do you have plans for these
rita galvan: Hello there! Thank you for this helpful video. By the way, I notice lots of people keep on talking about Xobotano Home Energy (just google it), but I'm not sure if it is really good. Have you considered this alternative home energy called Xobotano Home Energy? I have heard several incredible things about it.
dalibor mladenović: thanks for sharing it with us, it shows that you are generous person, and it is not matter that someone will try to make smtg smlr, you have achieved your goal. thera are so many vavt concepts, i am glad to see that yours works fine ;o)
Lokeal Votaro: Can this produce enough electricity to run a Tiny house or camper/rv?
Derrick Bane: What a great idea!
Gomez william c: guys check this ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM My wife is proud of me:)).. after I managed to build ... I could not believe that I'm thinking to sell energy.. WOW...This man has made a business out of it and now help others ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM will learn how and what to do and will also help if you need it... good luck to everyone
giurgiu ionel: Learn how to store your free energy for later use best solar cells at the best price possible make your own solar panel which can be done under $200 ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM
Simon Dang: great job man, m struggling to find a generator design associate with this vertical axis. Ur prototype looks amazingly neat. Can u email me how u mount the generator down low. firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks tons
adrian961: To bad these aren't pre-made kits available to the public
TheRoidemortetfleur: Looks good. Also looks safe from high wind damage.
Ritercrazy: It's beautiful, looks commercially made.
TheStavros1001: How much power does it produce?
Tiberiu Muranyi: also in the same idea , just pay attention on the highway the dividing concrete walls between the opposing lanes, imagine these type of micro VAWT's and solar panels placed on top of those concrete wall dividers and from the air blow that is generated by the cars and trucks, how much energy could be harvested... just my 2 cents...
GlobalTubeTruth: No, in your original comment, you just try to threaten Mike by insisting you have the right to take his idea, and use it any way you want. Which is false, but anyway... you really are a lowlife. I'm sure you've heard that from everyone from your parents, right down to people here on YT, and it's true. Why don't you try coming up with an idea of your own. How would you like it if some jerk came along and threatened to profit off of your hard work?? You'll never get it. Just go away loser pickle.
jeffsandychelsea: I said in my comment that not giving credit would be fraud. I have already established that it is wrong to stop someone from profiting from an idea, so long as they received the idea without breaching contract or stealing the idea through some kind of breaking and entering/hacking. Of course the courts won't allow people to profit from others' ideas. They also won't allow people to carry a sack of weed. Laws can be wrong. Your accusation that my apology is false is just a slap in the face.
GlobalTubeTruth: Read your comment again. You are implying that you have the right to reproduce this product, and that it would be immoral to try to stop you in court. I think you have it backwards. It would be immoral to use this product without the proper permission, and giving proper credit. You didn't say anything like that in your original comment, which is why you came off like a pickle. I think you still don't get it, and it's starting to sound like your apology was not from the heart. Think & do whatever..
jeffsandychelsea: I'm not saying I would go around profiting from others' ideas, but that if someone did do that it would be immoral to force them to stop. Of course, if they passed off the idea as their own creation, that would be fraud. Giving credit exposes the inventor as a creative person and maybe other companies would pay for his in-depth knowledge of the product and how to improve it to beat the competitor.
Also, is it bad to copy a business model? Should all fast food joints be paying royalties to McD's?
GlobalTubeTruth: Yeah, sounds good...but do you think a judge would buy it? Would you be willing to roll the dice in court against a man who can prove he invented the technology? I wouldn't even be able to face the guy, much less a prosecutor. I just have too much respect, and honer to do that. To take things to that level, just to profit off of someone else' ideas. I'm an artist, and inventor. Not on Mike's level, but just the same. I wouldn't be able to do that to someone, knowing they worked so hard. Ya know?
jeffsandychelsea: IP is an unjustifiable concept. The only time the creator of an idea has any legitimate control over how their idea is spread is if they contractually obligate all who see it to keep it a secret. But once any other person sees the idea, it becomes part of their mind and therefore their property (unless they hacked into a PC/broke in to get it or something). You can't tell someone they can't profit from something in their own mind, whether or not they were the original person behind the idea.
GlobalTubeTruth: Wow!! I'm very surprised, to say the very least. Not that it should be such a big deal to apologize when you're wrong, or come off rude. It's just that so few people ever do it, or even acknowledge, or admit it on any level, much less put it into writing. That is respectable, and I applaud your honesty. The apology is Mike's to accept, but I think you took a step in the right direction. I was very surprised to read his comment, which he so unselfishly was willing to share his idea with everyone.
jeffsandychelsea: You're right. I did come off as extremely arrogant and rude. I do apologize for that, Mike.
GlobalTubeTruth: next time, try showing respect, and gratitude for someone who engineered a tool that is HIS creation. Too bad you don't have the talent, or ingenuity to create anything this useful. Instead, like a parasite, you have to make a point of how you have the right to take, and profit off of someone else' skills, and productivity. You're like a child that wants to justify his right to shoplift from Walmart or something. You should be ashamed of yourself, and apologize to Mike for being such a jerk.
GlobalTubeTruth: Just reading your comment... what a complete asshole you come off as here. Just gotta tell ya. I don't think ANY of it would be yours to call your own, or profit from, if Mike didn't allow you to. Even the video is his property. You can watch it, even down load it, but you can't sell it. same goes for the turbine. It's his design, which is proprietary. If you take his design and sell it as your own, you can, and should be held responsible. Imped. of Tech Progress?? What a pickle you are dude.
Sander Tel: Hi Mike,
I must thak you from doing this great work. I ike the design a lot and I think some of the people are down right rude making remarks as if they stept out of a lawyers office...SHAME ON THEM !!! I am on holiday now in a rented RV experiencing 1st hand what power hungry feels like so very soon I will be cracking at one of these myself.
Only one thing: I would like to attempt a self wound alternator (serpentine or coils) but I am unsure what to go for. What would work ? Regards, Sander
Liz Rosenbaum: Innovation like this is the wave of the future, maybe just maybe there are enough awesome ideas like this to save us from ourselves? thanks for sharing
ron shoval: we have a gigantic nuclear reactor in the sun.
we should stop burning so much oil and make solar power our main source of energy.
it will be cheap, available to everyone and will put an end to pollution.
read pages 53-56 of THE PRESENT at TRUTHCONTESTxcom. it explains how we will be able to do it
wing4700: But if the guy has a patent you can not profit from it.
Luc gitarist: very nice handcrafted savonius windmill...it turns nice too.... I made one myself less sofisticated...thx for sharing...
dra6o0n: Basically in shape of a ball, with cut holes to match a spiral shape, to let wind pass through it.
The only issue is that without sufficient weight, the wind could swing the ball around, and if it's metal, expect it to become a wrecking ball lol.
Another idea that pops up is a pendulum based spinning wind turbine.
A pendulum may swing back and forth from the earth's own gravitational fields, IF you have a extremely long line.
And at the same time it can spin at the contact point of the ball.
dra6o0n: Hmm people made wind turbines attached to the ground, floating helium turbines in the sky, even mini turbines that can be placed anywhere...
Now here's a question, is there a wind turbine that hangs off of a high area, and has weight and spins too?
It'd be a upside down vertical wind turbine in a sense, with the slack of the cable holding it down like a chandler.
Mike D: what is the P.M.A.alternator you used for this project ? I was going to put a 14 magnet
alternator but the drag can be strong so I was told that a 7 magnet alternator would be better.
Rasmus Martinez: Que efecto tiene en watts?
copterrichie: May I see the plans for this design? This is just what I would like to build.
Jens Petersen: 'This intellectual property now belongs to all of us since you put it on display on the internet'
Not necessarily true - if he had obtained a patent.
And it isn't the Govt, rather capitalism that pursues intellectual property legislation. For example, thanks to capitalism, you do not own the property rights of your OWN DNA - that goes to the highest bidder.
AidanResh: Hey, I would like to use this design for a school project. I was wondering either how you built, or where you got the electronics for this. Many Thanks.
Hannes Wissing: Hí - I really enjoyed your recordings on building a wind turbine. You leave no questions unanswered about the construction and I guess it is a very affordable energy source for all the households which are off the electricity-grid.
adamson001: great answer from a great man
Judy Cooke: Lol, what a retard you are. What are you 12?
You need a shrink to work out your problems skippy ^^.
Bless your little scumbag heart.
Judy Cooke: You have such a perverted and twisted obsession with God and Christ. You go on and on about it. Gee, get some help.
It bothers you so much, you need to stop obsessing and ranting like an infant..<3
voluntaryist8: You are the parasite. Grouping people together!- without their permission. Did you ask Dr. rev. MLK if he was a messenger of christ, or if it was okay to speak on behalf of him, like you do for GOD and jesus already? freak no. you lumped yourself, mlk, and god together. voluntaryism is the opposite parasitism, voluntary mutualism. go vote, it probably makes you feel better. fallacious crap for brains.
voluntaryist8: so getting high and laid is a good thing? total fail. way to fill an entire comment with bullcrap, thats probably exactly what jesus would do....barf on your face, you are sickening.
Judy Cooke: Silly parasite ^^
