Twirling Tower Could Power itself and 10 others!




David Fisher has designed a wind-powered rotating skyscraper & what's unbelievable is the claim that the tower can power itself besides ten other similar sized buildings.

Although the technical details of the wind-power system are sketchy, at best, the architect David Fisher, has proposed that towers be built in a new way - basically by stacking platters on a central concrete core, causing a wind turbine between every floor & secondly, rotating floors.

"While the rotating floors have gotten quite a bit of press, really the most amazing claim is that the tower could provide all its own electricity. If true, this design could indeed mean a remarkable and sustainable future for skyscrapers."
