I came about this article on my Yahoo homepage. To sum it up: Nokia has built a WORKING cell phone that can recharge itself (NO, not through solar power) using TV, Radio, etc. waves. It takes the electromagnetic energy generated by the frequencies bouncing around our planet and turns it into electricity. Talk about a green solution, no matter how small it may be.

Dude, I can see the ad for that on my homepage.

Oh, I so totally want one now. Three to five years is just too long to wait.
That's pretty amazing, i would have never thought of it using TV/Radio waves. I thought of something though, what if your off in some who the hell knows where place where the radio/TV waves can't be picked up?
I wonder if they will bring this tech to laptops and such someday?
I don't even know if there is anywhere on this Earth that doesn't have stray radio waves bouncing around. Hell, if nothing else you'll be getting some coming from space.
Yeah i guess that's true, i didn't think of that.
What they ought to do is make one that will zap the user with 2,500,000 volts when trying to use it while driving.
Now if only they could make the cell signal work all over the world like that... :rolleyes:
Very cool technology though, sounds like something that could have massive potential.

Then you're no worse off than you are with a normal phone with a dead battery, and if it's somewhere that remote then you're an idiot for not carrying a car charger cable/spare battery/emergency battery in the first place.
