Propeller coat   (+2)  [vote for, against]
Warm up on sustainable energy

On particularly windy wintery,cold days, wear the wind turbine propeller coat.

A long coat with small propellers attached to the outer of the garment.

As the heavy winds catch and spin the radiating propellers,they in turn power up heating elements within the fleece of the coat via miniature turbines and flat cell batteries, concealed within the bottom of the pockets.

Attach them to your pants, and bring a whole new meaning to wind power.

If the propellors stick, you could flip over or take off.

It needs a reverse feature. If you want to walk real fast you flip a switch and the system uses the energy for cooling.
