Bacteria could build and power microscopic "wind farms"

Wind farms are well-established alternative power sources, but they do have their detractors who say they are an eyesore. But a new type of wind farm proposed by researchers at Oxford University is unlikely to attract such criticism. They claim computer simulations have demonstrated it is possible that microscopic wind farms could be built and powered by bacteria to provide a steady, albeit small, source of power.
