English designer Patrick Hyland has designed an innovative Nokia mobile E-Cu phone created from copper that uses heat from your body to charge itself.
The copper phone generates the energy it requires by use of a thermogenerator that’s been placed in the copper E-Cu phone. It can either use the heat from your body or any other heat source such as a radiator or similar.
The case of the phone is made of copper and features engraved heat-sinks in the shape of dried earth
Annually, unwanted phone chargers produce 51,000 tons of waste in addition to the greenhouse gases created by the production of the electricity needed to charge them. The Nokia E-Cu is a mobile phone charged by sources of heat therefore eradicating the need for a charger.
