Electronic gadgets help us remain connected everywhere, which rightly justifies their profound penetration in our lives. Of late we have seen several fantastic devices that have exploited renewable energy sources to help the equipment remain functional over longer periods of time on single charge. Industrial designer Cyrene Quiamco has devised Aeolus Phone with inbuilt power generating capabilities.
The Aeolus phone designed simply in the form of a droplet is lightweight and fabricated using renewable material. The power generating mechanism includes energy-generating rotating fan blades that can capture even the slightest breeze to keep the phone going. As an alternative to wind energy, the phone has solar panels as well to keep it going. The device has an energy efficient LCD display screen too. One can attach the phone to a special tripod while riding a bicycle or driving a car and remain connected anywhere, everywhere.
