Vertical axis wind turbines VAWT? Bird’s the word. Virtually free electricity, flap flap. The power of the air gods and a flurry of beating wings, you can ride into town on a stone block.

Whilst pondering ancient forgotten technology, the developer had a flash of insight.

Sacred to Horus, a flock of falcons perched atop a field of djed. With wings

outstretched they transferred life-giving energy from the air through the anch, affixed as a bearing in the top.

Ever-watchful sentries, they performed the duties of scare crows, keeping harmful birds and insects away from crops, while pumping water for irrigation and climate control.

Because of the down-draft like ceiling fans in operation, they pulled down faster-moving air from above, enhancing their power and bringing a cool breeze to ground level, where it was greatly enjoyed.

The pyramid created a natural up-draft to balance out the flow. When not in use, the wings would fold up for easy storage and transport.

Now today we have generators so they can also produce electricity.

Very well presented, well worth watching
