Cool Concepts – The Kinetic Cellphone
Check out this cool concept cellphone from designer Ricardo Baiao
The Atlas Kinetic Cell Phone concept focuses on greener technologies without sacrificing design. Its all made of aluminum and glass. The central sapphire glass reveals the generating and charging unit. Power comes from kinetic energy similar to that found in watches that use oscillating weight to power a mainspring.
The phone only contains basic features. None of that fancy multi-media stuff. If power runs out because it was sitting still for too long, just give it a few upside down turns to get the kinetic rotors going again. Now youll never have to worry about batteries.
Whilst I am not sure if I like the look of this cellphone, the way the device is powered is a great idea, and I would love to see this being integrated into mobile phones in the future, we definitely need manufacturers to start think of more ways gadgets can be powered.
