Aerotecture Visit

Bil Becker, the founder and president of Aerotecture, invited us up to his office to take a look at our designs and share some wisdom. He took us onto the roof, which is home to an array of solar panels and one of his elegant Aeroturbines. We were all impressed by the turbine; it began rotating at the slightest breeze, and was quieter than the wind itself. With scarcely any moving parts, it is simple yet rigorously engineered.

Bil was kind enough to donate a pulley wheel and two alternators, which we will be testing soon. Thank you Bil!

Watch a video I took of the Aeroturbine today and hear Bil explain how it works.
