WASHINGTON: Researchers have developed a new
device that turns human motion into power for electronic devices such as
cell phones, cameras and tablets.
The mobile generator 'Genneo' can charge a device with any type of movement
so a user could purposefully shake it or just leave it in a pant pocket
while taking a hike.
"Genneo has created a revolutionary line of products that capture energy
from walking, shaking or moving in other ways and turn it into charge for
your phone and other portable electronics," according to the product
description on Kickstarter.
"These products are easy to carry and they capture energy as you move
normally, storing that energy in their on-board battery," it said.
The device includes a micro USB port and comes with a pre-charging cable
with a standard USB connection on the other side; that cable allows you to
plug in one end into Genneo and the other end into your mobile device.

Researchers will soon launch two models of the mobile generator. The first
one delivers up to one hour of talk time in charge for every five hours that
it is carried in a backpack.
The other gives up to one hour of talk time for every seven hours it is
Shaking the Genneo accelerates charging. The first model can easily deliver
three minutes of talk time per minute shaken and the second one produces up
to two minutes of talk time per minute that you shake it.
