The T-Box Harnesses Wind Energy from Speeding Trains

If you have time to see only one conceptual wind turbine today, make it the T-Box. The 2010 Lite-On Award-winning T-Box is a wind turbine designed by Qian Jiang & Ale Leonetti Luparini that harnesses the wind power of passing trains and converts it into electricity.

The T-Box is a small wind turbine designed to replace the wooden supports in the middle of existing train tracks. With the T-Box in place, an entire train's trip could potentially be powered by its own wind energy. What makes the T-Box such a good concept is its practical design. The T-Box would require almost no new infrastructure to be created and could start pumping out eco-friendly power as soon as it's laid down.
