Drive Your Wind Turbine To Work with the Aiolos Concept from Kyoung Soo Na

The Aiolos Concept  from designer Kyoung Soo Na is a proposed solution to the air pollution  of South Korea. In the Aiolos, you can drive to work in a wind turbine , which generates more energy  the faster you drive, and then plug in to your office’s wind-powered energy grid to power up.
Unlike some fan-powered cars that place a propeller under the vehicle at odd angles, this looks like it could actually work. There isn’t much room for carpooling in the Aiolos, though. It’s a one-seater that is purpose-built for commuting. Also less than practical is the fact that it appears you need to have the vehicle’s door open to plug in  for charging.
