that is funny but if it was cheap I would get one as a backup plan

Ok that is cool but lame at the same time. Don't get me wrong going green is always the way I want to go but 130 twirls to power 2 minutes of talk time? How would that possibly be worth even having a cell phone?

I think that a lot of people would get this for thier kids. They have a phone for emergency's, and it's too time consuming to be able to go over your minutes. I bet if this does come out someone else will make a charger for it that spins it itself. Unfortunately it will be powered with a DC charger. haha. Now if they only put an actual razor on the new phone, I'd be all over it.

Standby time is only 25 minutes, kids would need standby time for "emergencies" too. Great concept, but not functional yet. It's like the electric cars that only drove 30 miles before needing a charge. Not practical yet, but we're getting there.

A pullstring design would be more efficient and get more power to the battery faster. Song Teaho and Hyejin Lee, you guys can have that one free of charge.
