Music company, Orange teamed with GotWind to create the DanceCharge, an innovative approach to charging small gadgets, like cell phones, by dancing. With all the outdoor festivals coming up, this discovery couldn't have come at a better time.

The little kinetic energy chargers, which wrap around the arm, are activated by body movement, generating enough electricity to recharge cell phone batteries.

"The portable kinetic energy chargers will be given a test run at this year's Glastonbury Festival, the world's biggest greenfield music and arts celebration," Reuters said.

"Attached to the user's arm, they employ a system of weights and magnets which provide an electric current to top up charge in a storage battery. This can then later be used to recharge the phone."
