Tina Casey previously reported on a helium-based airborne wind turbine from Altaeros Energies capable of delivering electricity from elevations ranging from 350 feet to 1000 feet. The image used for her post was a donut, reflecting the shape of the device.
Now Altaeros Energies has released a YouTube video, featuring explanatory notes on how the system works and how electricity is distributed.
Not so sure how the system — which could easily have been used for a scene in the movie Blade Runner — works with air traffic controllers. However, the technology is impressive and is said to deliver far more juice from its elevated altitudes. Check out the new video:
