It's perfect really, since upon discovering that your smartphone is out of battery, you may often find your idle hands to be left agitated anyway.

One model has a hole at one end, ideal for inserting your finger so you can swing the gadget around. The second has a twistable bottom which you can rotate. Both versions of the Rotel Mechanical Mobile use kinetic energy to create cellphones that are both fun and eco-friendly electronics. Stats for Fidget-Powered Smartphones Trending: Older & Popular
