Wouldn't it be cool if one could recharge their phone's battery by shaking it for a few minutes? Yeah, that may sound a lot like an idea taken out of a sci-fi movie, but scientists are already developing the technology needed to make that possible. And no, it does not involve any use of black magic. Instead, the energy of vibrations and movement...

And people go, "I'll call you in a minute, my battery's dead...got to shake it!!"
Or rather, "Here son, shake my phone for 5 minutes, the battery's dead, and i'll let you play Angry Birds"!! :D

Wow, in 1-2 minutes? That's far fetched...but by the time they reduce it to few minutes, there'll be better ways to charge phones. Or you won't need to charge at all...

Applications won't be a help on this one...it needs to be from the hardware. If it were available on an application...it will be a total gimmick!!
