French designer Philippe Starck has unveiled a small, sleek wind turbine aimed at eco- and fashion-conscious folks. It doesn't look like a windmill: The turbine is a polycarbonate rectangle, about 12 feet wide and 18 feet high. It can generate 20 percent to 60 percent of the energy needed for a home. It will reportedly sell for $630 when it's out on the market this fall.
