Concept phone charges in your pocket

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on October 7th, 2010

This concept Nokia phone charges in your pocket by inducting heat from your body. It comes from English designer Patrick Hyland, who sees the phone being made from copper and capable of drawing heat from your body, then converting it to energy.

It does this using a thermogenerator that’s been placed in the copper E-Cu phone (“E” for environment, and “Cu” for copper). Sadly, what with the demand and high prices of copper, this phone will never see the light of day.

If we can harness the power of childhood energy, especially those who play jump rope, we could do very well. This concept aims to take that jump roping energy and make it useful. It’s called the E-Rope and can generate power to charge a pair of AA batteries in each handle.

According to the designer, 20 minutes of jumping would fully charge all four AA batteries. Not sure if I believe that, but anything that promotes exercise and gives you charged batteries is a good thing.

GameBone Pro iPhone controller charges your iPhone while you playGame controllers have now gone to the dogs. But this stupid looking controller is actually pretty useful. It will charge your battery while you play, but the downside is that you have to have it plugged in to the iPhone 30-pin port. The GameBone can also be used via Bluetooth, but of course you can’t charge the iPhone wirelessly.

I have a feeling your dog will love it though. Sadly, it doesn’t even have any way to hold up the iPhone, so you’d have to prop it up, unless they ship it with a stand.

reviteLITE charges your iPhone, wards off monstersThis is truly an odd combo. An iPhone charger paired with that age old way of keeping monsters at bay, a night-lite. It’s a great idea. Should the lite fail for any reason, you can call for help with the monsters. They should have had this when we were kids.

The reviveLITE will certainly make you feel confident enough to sleep with your foot out of the covers and danging over the edge of the bed. It was developed by Scosche Industries, and will charge any and all iPods and iPhones. All you have to do is plug it into a wall outlet and you are safe. The darkness coming from your open closet is a whole other story.
