Charge by Movement, Not Batteries

Atlas Kinetic Phone

— February 17, 2008 — Eco
You will no longer worry about recharging your phone on a long trip, or be able to make up excuses about your phone being out of juice. The Atlas Kinetic Phone uses the daily movement of a cellular phone to generate electricity. And it does so in an elegant and stylish design, with a central sapphire glass revealing the generating and charging unit.

The mechanism is similar to kinetic / automatic watches and uses a oscillating weight that powers a mainspring. The central power unit transforms movement into electricity and supplies power to all phone electronic components. If power runs low or out because the phone was sitting still for too long, simply give it a few shakes upside down to get the kinetic rotors going again.

In addition to conserving electrical energy, the concept phone designer Ricardo Baiao aims to provide a greener phone with a long life cycle. Atlas Kinetic is all made of aluminium, case and buttons, giving it a higher resistance and durability than most current phones.

Trend Themes
1. Movement-based Charging - The trend of using movement to generate electricity and extend battery life in electronic devices.
2. Green Technology - The trend of incorporating sustainable materials and energy conservation into electronic devices.
3. Smartphone Durability - The trend of designing phones with increased durability and longevity.
Industry Implications
1. Consumer Electronics - The consumer electronics industry can incorporate these trends to create innovative products with longer battery life and better sustainability features.
2. Wearable Technology - The wearable technology industry can utilize movement-based charging to create devices that do not require frequent recharging.
3. Sustainable Materials - Industries that utilize sustainable materials can incorporate the Atlas Kinetic Phone's use of aluminum to create more durable and long-lasting products.
