A Canadian company has created a turbine that makes green energy for your home using a river's perpetual flow. Idenergie's river turbine can provide energy 24 hours a day and create up to 12kWh, which is enough to power a home!

It takes 3 people to be installed manually and needs to be connected to an electrical generator. The company also says there is no evidence that the turbine is harmful to aquatic life, so no fish will get trapped or injured in the turbine.


Industrial designer Dina Amin takes discarded consumer products apart to see exactly what makes them tick. The hobby exposes just how many resources and materials consumers throw away.
