Shoe Phone Charger!

A student by the name of Himachel Pradesh has created a cell phone charger that is shoe powered. It uses the impact of walking to operate a charger. He claims that it can charge a cell phone in about one hour.

This could be very useful when you are a long way from electricity. For example, a camping trip may be a great opportunity to use such a device. It looks a little funny on your leg, so away from civilization would be the only place I would be using it.Shoe Phone Charger

This is a very cool idea, that could be applied to all sorts of devices. The act of capturing energy and reusing it, can make life easier and more efficient. I like the idea of using something that most of us do anyway (walk), to generate power for something that we often use.

Great Job Himachel!

  1. Get Smart

    For those of us that have been around a while,(or have seen the old cable shows) this reminds me of Don Adams as Max or agent 86 on the GET SMART tv series.

    I also have a Guidesman LED flashlight that can temporarily charge a cell phone. The flash light and its accesorry port are charged with a mechanical wind-up hand crank.

    But I agree that it is a lot easier walking than cranking 🙂
