With turbines popping up all over the world, it was only a matter of time until something like the Wind Lens was created. Bringing energy production offshore, not only does it extend eco-power's reach, it also could create more efficient energy.
Announced at the Yokohama renewable Energy International Exhibition 2010, the Wind Lens "is a series of interlocking "hoops" with turbines on the edges. The turbines focus the wind into the center of each hoop, increasing the amount of energy generated," according to Dvice. Keep your eye on Japan's shoreline, for the Wind Lens will surely appear there in the next couple of years.
