For many centuries, people have used wind power to move ships at sea. But what if you try to create a land vehicle that can use the wind as a driving force? Thus to make so that it could move even against the wind direction, that is, anywhere. American engineer Kyle Karstens has developed just such a concept and even printed it scaled-down model on a 3D printer.
The Experimental model of the vehicle on a wind-powered called Defy the Wind ("Challenging the wind"). It is a platform on four wheels, as well as unusual rotating , consisting of four conical bowls.
