I like the idea but it looks like a medieval torture device. You can also expect to find lots of bloody bird corpses laying near the bridge O_O

That'd be pretty cool. While we're on the subject of beautiful turbines, have you all seen this building in Dubai?

Something of this nature would be an awesome addition to our downtown.

I'm with Steve, I don't find the wind farms that ugly. A friend of mine just got back from a buisness trip to west Texas and he said the wind farms out there at night are almost hypnotizing. Hundreds of lights blinking in unison. The picture of the pedestrian bridge on Steves' blog looks like a carnivale funhouse. For some people it might be nausiating. I think it would be cool as a piece of art in a park setting, or as a skywalk between two buildings (walkway enclosed of course) That would be a weird experience. :dizzy:
