WindPal - a portable fabric "windmill" USB generator.

Saw this in Twitter. A 5V/1A windmill in 0.866 kg.

It looks like some of the promo pictures were taken in Patagonia around Cerro Fitzroy- somewhat ideal place for wind power. When I was there it was almost always blowing a gale.

You'd need a 13mph wind to get anything useful out of it, and 22mph for 1A charge rate.  :=\
