very cool!

I had no idea which country is implementing energy duck until I clicked through. DENMARK.

Inspired by Florentijn Hofman’s giant Rubber Duck sculpture, which graced Australian waters back in 2013, a team of UK designers have developed Energy Duck, an energy generator.


The 'duck' will be constructed from a lightweight steel frame and will be installed at Refshaleøen, a former industrial site that’s across Copenhagen Harbour's most famous public art statue—The Little Mermaid. 

Energy Duck has been designed to transmit all the energy it produced to Copenhagen's public grid. According to Gizmag's Bridget Borgobello, "the giant structure has been designed not only to generate clean electricity for the local residents of Copenhagen, but also to provide a unique visitor centre".

This is not a joke. It's a giant duck of energy that tourists will flock to!

 So where could one come by a giant duck shaped form for Energy Duck?

Oh... don't know about you but I'm making one in my backyard out of paper mache.
