Well not really, but the uses for this are limitless. Of course, someone will probably attempt to dispose of a body in it then it will be a "bad thing"
Anyway it's an interesting read

"Polifka, with no more than a high school education and a creative way of looking at problems, has been working on the Windhexe for 15 years. He calls it the “Tornado in a Can” — a system for safely harnessing the enormous power of a funnel cloud in a small industrial machine. "

That is very, very interesting, as it is a possible solution to the landfill problem facing many countries. It could be used as an alternative to recycling and melting of metals, plastics, etc. I'm not sure if this is such a safe use for it, but all the toxic waste and nuclear material kept in the middle of the US could be significantly reduced. Maybe as this technology develops, there will be smaller domestic units for use in homes and such. The possibilities are truly endless. Nice find.

I agree, my first thought was "Cool no more trips to the trash can" Of course there would have to be somekind of safety feature that would not allow your 4 year old to put the cat in and take it for a spin

Meoooow..........

LOL, imagine having a 8V (8 vortex) engine! How cool does that sound?

On a more serious level, I'm sure this could be used as ALMOST free-energy (almost free becasue of the electricity needed to run the machine). Also, I'm sure as this technology develops, it will become quiter, smaller, more efficiant, and cheaper (as all technology does).

This is very interesting..thanks for the post! I'm actually surprised it hasn't been more publicized.

Of course, as far as you rcomment about the 'body disposal'...my immediate thoughts were "Soylent Green"
