Recharge you Phone with your Breath!
Bangalore: Just breathe to give your device a new life! Sounds amusing, but this concept is soon going to be a reality as researchers have come up with a new device that uses the air from your lungs to charge your phone. Recharging the gadget with a spoon of water and with body movements were marvels in themselves and now you just have to breathe to juice your gadgets.
The new device is called ‘AIRE mask’, it uses the wind power generated by your breathe and converts it into electricity to recharge anything from an iPod to a smartphone. The whole kit comes with an electronic mask which has minute wind turbines to cover wind (breath) into electricity and a small cable to transfer the energy to the device.
Inventor Joco Paulo Lammoglia, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil says, “It can be used indoors or outdoors, while you’re sleeping, walking, running or even reading a book. Besides saving energy and helping environmental preservation, it also encourages physical exercise.” Its energy is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Though many of our modern gadgets offer benefits, they tend to use a high amount of electrical energy. Harnessing energy from human activities and transforming it into electricity is possible and is a great solution,” Lammoglia added.
