Try not to jiggle while watching these amazing bladeless wind turbines.

The wind: A cool breeze, a breath of fresh air, a pollen delivery system.

When it’s not inverting your umbrella, knocking over your pitcher of iced tea, or sadistically ushering a balloon away from a crying child, the wind is capable of doing some pretty powerful stuff.

It’s called Bladeless, and it’s a wind turbine with — you guessed it — no blades.

The bladeless turbines are massive poles jutting out of the ground. Because they’re thinner than a regular wind turbine and have no blades, more of them can fit into a space, meaning more electricity can be generated while taking up less real estate.

A good example of aeroelasticity-gone-wild happened in 1940 at the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State, when it was blasted with hurricane winds up to 40 mph. The suspension cables absorbed the impact but made the bridge vibrate and undulate, causing a positive feedback loop known as anaeroelastic flutter, where each vibration made the next vibration even worse.
