Wrap your turban around the circumference vertically instead of horizontally, in such a manner that leaves a long edge a bit loose to catch the wind. Add a close stand-off, to keep it from messing up the 'do, and a generator to power cells and PDA's.

I'd like to thank all the people that made this shamelessness possible ... [FlyingToaster], of course I couldn't have done it without you> [MikeD, Jun 04 2008]

       I would only wear a turban if it was weather or culturally appropriate.

       well... there's always the old standby propeller-beanie.

       //well... there's always the old standby propeller-beanie//   

       With which, I'm sure, you will be wearing propeller buttons.   

       I'll be damned, it's my first shameless self-promotion (as theleopard so succinctly put it), here at the HB. I feel all grown up, now.

       A pun masquerading as an idea, methinks.

       Again I find myself unable to visualize what is being described. How can a long loose edge of a turban flapping in the wind generate power?

would look like a loose-cloth version of a roof wind-turbine.

       [MikeD], welcome. You've finally arrived!

       //would look like a loose-cloth verions of a roof wind-turbine// You mean it would spin around on his head/face? Wouldn't that rub things a bit raw? Or am I still missing it?

       This idea makes me want to be Sikh.
