Percy Kawas is the founder, CEO, chief Alchemist, main geek ..... of Alchemy Power Inc. (API), a company started to collect power from the wind in an efficient manner leveraging Bernoulli’s principles. The XPS-1600 is the first product which meets that goal. Measuring the performance on the XPS-1600 and my familiarity with Unix+software/hardware led me to use the Raspberry Pi. I loved the fact that the Raspberry Pi is a low cost Linux Computer, with access to GPIOs and other capabilities. It amazes me how the user community have used this product in many different ways!!!
