A T-shirt that charges mobile phones

Here is the new T-shirt from orange that charges mobile phones while one watches musical bands in action. All you need to do is to plug in your phone into the T-shirt for a quick top-up charge whenever it needs it.

The futuristic garment works by using noise-responsive technology; louder the music, quicker the phone charges, ay its developers.

It uses an A4-size piece of piezo-electric film-a technology commonly used in hi-fi speakers-to absorb pressure from sound waves. The energy gathered from sound waves is stored in a reservoir battery in the form of electrical charge, which it then transfers from its battery into a lead that fits most phones.

Apparently about 80dB of sound will be experienced during a music set, which the shirt will be able to change into 6W of electricty. This is enough to charge a smartphone over the course of the weekend.This simple things changes our way of living.
