Oscillating (Bladeless) Magnet Wind Turbines

Check out this new wind turbine tech: Wind power without a turbine or any blades at all.  Instead a long shaft is designed to vibrate in the wind, the vibration is used to induce an electric field using magnets.

It generates 30% less energy but has many other important benefits, including not killing 1300 birds.  Which is what happened in one small town.
