Wind-harvesting tree

Imagine a wind powered generator. But it's not big, or unsightly, or loud, or dangerous to wildlife. It's small, shaped like a tree, its leaves are mini windmills that can capture energy from the lightest breeze (7 km/h), and it can power a house with up to 4kW of electricity.

It's called NewWind. Video in French.

Oh dear, on close up those really look rather phallic, so maybe some flower shapes or cartoonish ones?
