Saw this on the news this morning (but can't find it on the web): Nokia is developing a cell phone battery recharger that uses radio/cell/wifi, etc, signals to power the recharger.
Thanks to Google search, people can appear to be smarter than they really are.

That could be cool if they ever get it to actually work. I have also thought about some sort of device like an automatic watch that winds itself. Seems like cell phones are moved plenty so there has got to be some energy to be captured. I just kind of doubt that it would be enough to actually do much.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

That would be a cool technology if they can actually get it to work right.
