Aard Generator Combines Wind and Solar Energy

Industrial designer Arttu-Matti Immonen comes up with a new concept that combines both wind and solar energy in a single package.

The new generator, called Aard, has a round shape which carries flexible photovoltaic modules on the surface, having the possibility to harvest renewable energy during daytime. When outside are strong winds, the ball starts to rotate and generates electricity through the onboard dynamos.
To have a beautiful look, Aard is made from an aluminum construction (to convert low-speed winds into renewable energy) combined with basic blue color.
