It has to do with the physical property, a certain materials that are called piezoelectric materials, some ceramics a lot of materials have piezoelectric properties, but some have incredibly strong properties, which basically the consequences that when they're when there's pressure applied to the material, it gives off an electric charge. And conversely, if you take an electric charge to the material, you can actually bend it. It responds to electricity and its physical manifestation.

So by stacking these kinds of pieces of electric actuators as they're called, you could potentially provide a significant amount of electricity production by the wind bending these materials. That's the theory.
