MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- A bumblebee-inspired 19-foot wind turbine prototype created a buzz, both literally and figuratively, at The Perfect Pitch 2009 entrepreneur conference on Monday, October 26th.
Created by the clean energy company Green Wavelength, the prototype represents an attempt to break the mold of everyday windmill solutions that are, at best, 30 percent efficient, and seek efficiency from biological sources such as the movement of bumblebees, hummingbirds, and dragonflies.
"Breakthrough ideas are often the result of the convergence of seemingly disparate concepts," noted Sabri Sansoy, the CEO of Green Wavelength and aerospace veteran, "and we are committed to finding ways of applying nature's solutions to our man made energy problems."
The prototype catapulted Green Wavelength into the top 50 finalists in the pitch conference, that featured Sir Richard Branson as a keynote speaker, and placed it in the running with entrepreneurs focused on everything from high-end recreational vehicles to artificial fingers.
The conference was well attended and the crowd was alternately informed and encouraged by the series of high profile panelists and speakers including the founder of Wahoo's Fish Taco, Wing Lam, and the creator of Ed Hardy, Christian Audigier.
