I believe you mean the blades are Vertical like in a Vertical Axis Wind
Turbine (VAWT) instead of Horizontal which is like most of the "wind
mill" kinds out there that do not work as well as Vertical Axis.
are a number of Youtube videos about people making their own VAWTs and a number
of them are excellent designs.
are a couple I like.

I have a friend that's currently designing a new wind turbine
electricity generation system for home use. He's an engineer and has been
working on this for quite some time. What makes his design so unique is that
the turning blades set horizontally, rather than
vertically. The design allows for multiple turning blades to be
'stacked', which generates far more power in the same amount of
space. Plus, he's working on 'hidden housing' enclosure for the tower
of blades, that has a 'chimney' look to it. It's very cool. I'll post
pics of the whole thing soon.

I'm sure many of you have seen
this. Presumably the Honeywell folks know what they are doing.
Current thoughts, anyone?
