Understanding the market[edit]

I need people to come up with a design that uses more common, cheap components so communities with less resources can make them.

Project goals[edit]

I want this device built and have them put on wind turbines worldwide so birds can fly safely and we can build more turb


Design[edit]

My current design is an arduino, connected to the internet to keep track of the birds, and two speakers behind a rotating metal plate used to broadcast the signal


Costs[edit]

I am unaware of the costs, as I made the prototype with stuff from around my garage.

Discussion[edit]

Wind turbines are still growing fast, do you think this invention is actually necessary

Conclusions[edit]

I believe wind turbines are not only necessary for a sustainable future, but for a strong economy as they can lead to a prosperous middle class. We need more or them everywhere and so we need products to address concerns environmentalists have posed.
