Windmills are one of those testimonies of history that the beginnings of technical development are able to show. The product of human innovation reflects the transition from purely manual labor to animal husbandry to the use of wind and water power. The focus is therefore on the drive itself, which is still used in many ways today in the form of a propeller.
The one designed by the brand manufacturer UGEARS from sustainable wood „Tower windmill“ is therefore not a product of pure fantasy, but rather revives its myth through many legends and post-modern magic. Stories like that of the world-famous Don Quixote from the novel of the same name by Don Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, written in 1605, enliven technical progress and question it in some critical or comedy-like manner. Less about the fight against the windmill, the UGEARS models are devoted to technical understanding, which conjures up a retrofuturistic work of art in the style of steampunk in 585 individual parts. Theie aerodynamic wing as well as six timesArch base are the likeness of the Chesterton Windmill in the village of the same name in Chesterton in Warwickshire. The power of the wind, which can be transmitted with a rubber band, can be traced in every detail and is a valuable object of demonstration of mechanical achievements.
