The smart and efficient domestic wind turbine (

Liam F1 Urban Wind Turbine (UWT) is a simple, portable, and ingenious wind-harvesting device.

The world’s most influential inventions and scientific breakthroughs saw the light of day when uncomplicated ideas materialized as functional objects.

Dutch company The Archimedes developed an innovative wind turbine for domestic use that produces 1,500 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy per year with a wind speed of 5 m/s, i.e., 18 kilometers per hour or 9.7 knots.

But what’s really impressive about this compact wind turbine is its design. Liam F1’s spiral/screw-shaped rotor always points in the direction where the wind blows and converts its kinetic energy into mechanical energy.

The gadget only needs winds of 3.8 knots (2 m/s) to start rotating and producing energy
