Nokia E-Cu - Charge Your Phone Using the Heat of Your Pocket

Oct 07, 2010
Patrick Hyland, a British designer, came up with a new concept cell phone that could revolutionize the phone market.

Dubbed "Nokia E-Cu", the handset incorporates a technology that was previously not used in cell phones.

The device does not need to the plugged into a socket to fill its battery up. The energy used to charge the phone is produced by the heat of the user's pocket.

It would be interesting to note that the Nokia E-Cu includes a copper case that has engraved heat-sinks in the shape of dried earth.

Inside, the designer decided to include a thermogenerator that transforms heat from any source into electrical energy.

The device will be able to eliminate the 51,000 tons of waste and greenhouse gases produced by phone chargers each year.
