yes.. more fake trees

fake trees just keep getting better! Power Genereating Trees designed by NL Architects, based in, where else, the Netherlands, are miniature wind turbines shaped like trees, with the turbines extending off the 'branches' it maximizes the amount of wind that can be captured and harvested into renewable energy on such a small scale. also aside from their white color the impact on the visual environment is minimal and the noise is reduced as well! the design also makes it possible for two homes [or one home on a large lot] to invest in one 'tree' and use the energy for their homes.. and who knows, if extra energy is produced the home owners can sell the remainder to the city, helping to curb the consumption of non-renewables and bring the architectural city alive!
