Caption: Rotor ship Buckau. Historical image of a ship powered by Flettner rotors (tall tubes). Rotor, or Flettner, ships use the Magnus effect for propulsion. The Magnus effect is a force acting on a spinning body in a moving airstream, which acts perpendicularly to the direction of the airstream.
