An Eco-Friendly Energy Generator Can Be Made in a More Eco-Conscious Way

An environmentally conscious technology is only as green as its own makeup, so a product like this 3D-printed wind turbine truly sets a higher standard. While the majority of apparatuses of this sort are manufactured with newly produced materials and parts, this particular object by RMRDTECH is built with an increasingly efficient twist.

It takes just two hours to 3D print the components for this 5V wind energy unit, with great consistency and reduced waste. The entire assortment of parts comes together into a portable device that can be set up outside of a trailer, taken on camping trips, or erected adjacent to rural homes. The duo that created this 3D-printed wind turbine actually got their start in making similar mechanisms from recycled pieces, to bring affordable electricity to off-the-grid communities in Central America.
