Ping-Yi Lin's Chewing Gum Battery concept is perfect for those who just can't seem to keep their smartphone battery full. This ingenious concept serves up solar power strips designed to recharge a gadget's battery. The strips gain their power from the solar-powered vending machine that they're distributed from. The Chewing Gum Battery Concept is great because it offers folks a chance to recharge their gadgets in an eco-friendly manner. Other solar charging stations require you to hook up your gadget and wait for it to charge. Lin's device does away with wait times and allows you to take your temporary top up with you.

The technology to turn this concept into a reality doesn't exist just yet, but this design is still worth crossing your fingers for. Imagine how amazing the world would be if you didn't have to frantically search for an outlet every time your phone showed low battery.
