Seriously cool technology

So the implementation of this is a bit far off in the future, and there is no telling if it will work in practice, but the idea of turning skyscrapers into wind turbines is, in my opinion, seriously cool. There is so much wind energy to be harvested in cities, which themselves use so much electricity. If some or maybe in the future all of this could be transferred to wind, that would be really something. Even if this doesn't work, the idea that some creative people are thinking way out of the box to create such innovations is inspiring and could lead to other related inventions as well.
