Orange “Sound Charge” T-Shirt for Glastonbury

The music festival season is underway in the UK, with Glastonbury Festival starting tomorrow. To celebrate, Orange have invented a t-shirt that recharges mobile phones using a piezoelectric material to convert sound waves into electricity. Over a weekend of music, the t-shirt will produce enough juice to charge a smartphone.

The t-shirts were developed by Orange in conjunction with GotWind, renewable energy specialists. The piezoelectric film charges a battery pack from which the wearer can then charge his or her phone. At the Festival, user testing will determine which musical performances give the best charge. Personally, I’d guess the loudest.

Andrew Pearcey, Head of Sponsorship at Orange UK said: “In a vibrant festival environment such as Glastonbury, sound is such an obvious medium that it seemed like a natural fit to use it in the development of this year’s prototype….It could even influence trends in fashion, with designers looking to integrate this passive charging solution into clothing.

Orange has a history of innovative phone charging solutions for festivals. Last year, the Power Welly generated power from walking and in previous years there have been the Power Pump and the Dance Charger.

You can read the full press release here – it’s hilarious and there’s a video too. You couldn’t make this stuff up.

GNC-2011-03-11 #654 Tsunami Inbound!

The massive earthquake hits Japan just as I start my show, we are under a Tsunami Warning here in Hawaii with first strike due at 3am local. Based on what has happened in Japan it could be bad. The Ohana watching the show live were feeding me information, kinda weird to talk about a live event in which I knew most of you would be listening post show. Needless to say lots of tech to talk about tonight as well.

Note: My home is 1000 feet above sea level we are safe.

Gazelle – Convert Your Unwanted Gadgets Into Money

Andy talks with Anthony Scarsella, Chief Gadgets Officer at Gazelle, purchasers of previously-enjoyed (second-hand) gadgets. Now over 4 year’s old, this is big business with over 250,000 gadgets models available for trade-in.

When compared to ebay or craigslist, Gazelle simply gives a superior customer experience. Free shipping is included, boxes are sometimes provided and there’s no question about whether the purchaser is reliable or not – payment is typically made in week or less. Gazelle provides an online chat where people can ask questions about models or condition.

Basically, there are three steps…first find your gadget on the Gazelle site and put in some information about condition and accessories. Gazelle will then make you an offer: if you accept, you ship the gadget to them. On receipt, Gazelle checks the gadget over and if it matches what you told them, they send you the money within 5-7 days. Easy-peasy.

Anthony reveals some of the economics of the market, including how sales of previous generation phones peak when new models are announced.

Gazelle

The newest shiniest gadget has just come out and you want it, but what do you do with the previous model. You could try to sell it on Ebay or Craigslist but there is an easier way it is called Gazelle. You can send your old electronics to Gazelle and they will either pay you or if the item is not worth anything they will recycle it for you. The way it works is you go to the site and enter the item you want to get rid of. They will ask you the condition of the item and if you have any charger, cables and CD’s that came with the device. Once you fill in the required information they will tell you how much they will pay for the device. On the same page you can see how much the gadget was going for over time. If you choose to accept their offer they will send you a shipping label. In some cases they will send you an box to ship the gadget or gadgets in. Place the item in the box and send it off to Gazelle.  Gazelle will send you an email letting you know they’ve received the item and they have to inspect it.

Once Gazelle finishes looking the item over, you will get another email letting you know if there were any problems and if the price they are going to pay is different then what was originally given. The price maybe lower or higher, if you don’t like the new price they will send the gadget back to you. They have multiple payment options, including Paypal, Amazon Gift Card or Walmart PrePaid Visa. I’ve used Gazelle myself and had a great experience. They kept in touch by email and notified me when there was a problem. It was easy and convenient with no hassle involved.

Desktop Embedded Wireless Charging by WiPower

Esbjorn Larsen took a look at a booth that was showing wireless charging pads and cases. This booth was partnership between multiple companies including Qualcomm Duracell Everwin and Gill Industry Their final product will be called WiPower. Each company plays a part in the development and distribution of the product. This shows how many companies end up getting involve just to get a product to market. Also why sometimes there are delays.

I believe that Qualcom is working on the wireless technology involve, Duracell the battery technology, Everwin the manufacturing process and Gill is a leader in innovative furniture production. They are looking to inbed the technology directly into desktops. I kind of wonder what they were doing at CES. I suspect they were looking for potential retail partners, but it wasn’t clear. The mats themselves looked potentially interesting. It would be nice to get rid of all the wiring and cables. However I don’t want to replace a bunch of cables with a bunch of pads.

I hope these pads and cases can be used with multiple manufacture’s devices, or I can have one large pad for my desk. I suspect these devices will not be out this year. When they do come out they will probably be at a different price point.

Dexim: Charging Solutions for Your Iphone or Ipod

Dexim offers several quality charging solutions for the iPhone and iPod. The P-Flip Foldable Solar Power which is a solar battery and dock. It allows you to charge and sync your iPhone or iPod using solar power. It takes about 15 hours of direct sunlight to do a full charge. You can also charge through the mini-USB cable that is included. The battery output 5VDC and has an input power of 5V 1000mA.

They also offers a P-flip Foldable Power which charges through the USB cable only and is a little smaller. Both the P-Flip Foldable Solar Power and the P-flip Foldable Power can extend talk time up to 8 hours, music up to 60 hours, video up to 15 hours and gaming up to 15 hours.

The Super Juice Power Case acts both as a case and a charger. It is made for iPhone 4 only. It extends talk time up to 6 hours, 40 hours for music, 10 hours for video. It has a 2000mAH lithium polymer battery. There is a micro-USB cable included which allows you to charge your phone without removing the case.

There is a built-in kickstand and an on/off switch included. If you are looking to save some energy at home you may want to take a look at the Visible Green Charge. When you are charging your iPhone or iPod a blue light flows through the charging cable.  As the charge reaches 65 percent the flow starts slowing down. When the iPhone  reaches a full charge the light flow stops and the charger shuts down. This can save up to 85 percent of the standby power, when your device is not charging. This is a fast and easy way to know when your device has finished charging and save some money while you are at it.
