Kind of like the $100 Laptop on Trend Hunter a few months ago. The Motorola PVOT is a concept phone designed by Andre Minoli. When you turn the crank a few times, you get enough energy to have a phone call. It's intended for 3rd world countries, although the sleek design makes me crave it!

Implications - Social business is a growing industry that has the potential to solve many world issues while ensuring companies stay afloat. Products such as this hand-cranked Motorola are still selling a valuable, money-making product, while improving communications in developing countries. Corporations would do best to consider how their commodities help to sustain their business while simultaneously aiding those in need. Stats for Motorola PVOT Trending: Older & Mild
