You may well have a new way to charge your Mobile Phones! Just plug your phones to your T-Shirt and you start re-charging your phone.
Sounds cool? Of course it does; and it may soon be a reality!
Mobile Leaders, Orange have released a prototype T-Shirt for the people who plan to visit the Glastonbury Festival for watching and hearing music bands live in action!
The T-Shirts will effectively use noise-responsive technology, for generating some quick top-up charge which may help you charge your phone whenever you need it!
The Glastonbury Festival will also be a testing ground for these cool T-Shirts, as Orange UK will be making key observations like, “which activities cause a lot to charge to generate” and “which activities enable maximum charging of phones” around the ‘Spirit of 71’ stage.
Tony Andrews, co-producer of the Spirit of 71 said, “Sound vibrations, particularly Bass Frequencies, will create enough shaking to produce electricity from a piezoelectric material as simple as film.”
“It looks like it could provide a real solution to mobile charging and I’m interested to see how the Orange Sound Charge performs when it is tested in a live environment such as Glastonbury”, he added.
Andrew Pearcey, head of sponsorship at Orange UK appeared quite affirmative in the selection of the Glastonbury festival as a testing place for this prototype T-Shirt.
We just need to wait for sometime before these T-Shirts would be available for release to consumers. After all, they are just in the testing phase as-of-now.
