The latest smartphone charger has the capacity to extract energy with the help of human organs, designed by a 19-year-old named Michael Vaga.
Regardless to say, smartphones with various applications and video games are likely to drain out of juice; hence, there’s greater possibility for a smartphone to turn off when needed the most. In order to get rid of this trouble, the 19-year-old from Belarus came up with the perfect solution.
How does it work?
For the device to function, the user simply needs to rotate their hand for activating the charger’s gyroscope, which generates the required energy. The energy can be either used for charging any smartphone or for later consumption.
The HandEnergy Kickstarter project initially aimed at raising €50,000; however, it has managed to raise €71,333 already from potential users who want to own at least one device in the future.
From the Maker
The latest phone charger has taken more than a year to become a successful project, and the designer is now fully prepared for commercializing his creation. Michael Vaga explained,
“With each rotation of your hand, the rotor speed increases significantly and generates more power. The average speed of the rotor is 5,000rpm.”
“We translate the mechanical energy you put in into electrical energy and this means you can charge your device.”
The device takes approximately 40 minutes for fully charging a smartphone.
Not only is this device an exceptional source of power for smartphones but also a perfect example of green energy. The device will be available from March of this year with a retail price of €99.
