Nokia have always gone after new innovations. The company is now joining hands with a group of scientists from the University of Southampton to make a dream idea turn true. They are developing a new technology to power batteries of handsets from lightning.
The new research team headed by Neil Palmer, one of the famous scientists at the Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory of the University, is working on finding methods to charge a Nokia Lumia 925 handset using the power delivered during lightning. The researchers believe that they can make this dream idea true.
Palmer has been quoted as saying that his team is really excited with the huge challenge Nokia has presented to them. Experiments have already been kick started by the team, using some artificial energy sources that resemble lightning. And, the results are awesome.
Nokia’s executive vice president Chris Weber has been quoted as saying about the new idea that they are the first manufacturers who is tapping such a kind of technology. He continued saying that this experiment has the potential to jump-start new ideas on how people can charge their phones on future.
