A 360-degree look at wind turbines is a real geek-fest

Seimens Siemens, one of the big three in wind turbine production, has put together a very cool site looking at life in onshore and offshore wind farms, plus turbine production and blade construction. It's a fine bit of corporate propaganda in the best sense.

I like the woman who has an engineering degree but speds much of her life dangling by ropes 80 meters in the air, inspecting turbine blades. Also cool is the engineer who proudly shows off his invention that makes turbines in wind farms rotate in sync, because it looks prettier!

It's done with high-resolution 360-degree photos with overlaid videos. Very professional.

Here's the site - check it out.
