Until recently, the only commercially viable wind harvesting device was the turbine. Humdinger’s Windbelt™ is the first non-incremental innovation beyond this century-old approach.


Instead of using conventional geared, rotating airfoils to pull energy from the wind, the Windbelt™ relies on an aerodynamic phenomenon known as aeroelastic flutter (‘flutter’). While the phenomenon is a well-known destructive force (e.g., a cause of bridge failure), researchers at Humdinger have discovered that it can also be a useful and powerful mechanism for catching the wind at scales and costs beyond the reach of turbines.

At its heart, The Windbelt™ uses a tensioned membrane undergoing a flutter oscillation to pull energy from the wind.
