Shehan, Agreed what you are saying but dont you think so one should use permanent method of energy production .like noise it is almost every where even where there are no humans we can get sound by animals insects or birds
"Do you know what cities may be good choices for wind energy? Here in Albuquerque, we have a windy spring, but I don't believe we top 200 windy days. The need for consistent wind could create barriers to wind energy collection."
Rob, am from India and here in most parts of southern states like Tamilnadu and Kerala has deployed similar models. These states have a vast costal area with Arabian sea and hence a good source of wind too.
"Yes as you said some areas do have much wind to generate energy, for such areas we could easily use solar panels to generate power as we have ample sun light that we waste. "
Shehan, if it's a hybrid model then the absence of one source can be maintain/substitute by the other. I mean if its cloudy day, sunlight may not be there and hence power can be generated by wind and vice versa.
Shehan, a transformer is not a way to increase the power. One could increase the voltage, but the power is a fairly constant quantity. Captured power is a direct function of the effective area that is capturing the wind. No way around that.
@Elizabeth – I think in NY we could have the small wind turbines and solar panels on top of roofs on skyscrapers. Solar panels could also be on streets to light up the street light there by at least contributing something to the power grid.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
