Scottish inventor, Ian Gilmartin, has invented a mini water wheel capable of supplying enough electricity to power a house from as little as an eight-inch water fall. The contraption is designed to be used in small rivers or streams, without harming fish.

AKA: The Beck Mickle "low head" micro hydro generator.
