Designer Daizi Zheng has designed a mobile phone of which the battery can be powered by a soft drink. Tjongolongo, how cool is that! She designed the phone battery for Nokia.
According to her site, the concept is based on the idea to create a pollution free environment by using bio-batteries as an alternative to conventional batteries.
The battery should be cheaper to produce, uses less production resource and is environmentally friendly. However, not only will the battery be environmentally friendly, after charging the battery should last 3 to 4 times the length of charging a normal battery.
Could soft drinks be the future of mobile phones? Who knows, personally, I like these kind of inventions and I hope that if Nokia doesn’t do anything with the idea another phone company will, because it’s just too good a concept to be left lying in the corner somewhere collecting dust.
It would be ideal if they can make a phone which can both be powered by electricity as well as soft drinks. That way you’ll always have a way of charging your battery! It would also be an interesting piece of eco marketing if they can pull this off. The first eco-friendly mobile phone, powered by a soft drink!
Would you buy a mobile phone which can be powered by a soft drink?
