Back with more green gadgets...

Hey people!
It's been a while since my last gadget post... So I've decided to make another one of these...
The gadget I will discuss this time is somewhat like those I've spoken about before It's (ANOTHER) portable recharging unit for mobile devices...

I might hear you thing, "what, again?" But believe me this one is so special I just had to mention it... This recharger is good for the environment, yet it doesn't run on water, nor on light, and also not on wind... What does this thing use to create power then? Well, something not that many people will expect: WIFI signals... Yep, those things you use to get access to the nets can also be used as a source of power... I was skeptical at first, but after doing some research it seems to really work (and even quite good)...
The device is developed by RCA, and has a price of about 40$ you can't complain at all...
Did I mention it has a battery included, so you can actually just run around with this thing in your pocket while it charges itself... Now that's what I call amazing...

Anyways, now that I've had the subject of green power once again, allow me to continue on that track with another 2 small gadgets:

First is a wireless mouse that recharges itself when you move, click or scroll... Now that's useful... No more problems with replacing expensive batteries or a mouse that needs to be recharged inside it's dock while you need it the most... That's all music of the past thanks to CORKY, a prototype mouse designed by Adele, a price isn't known, but I would pay a decent price for such a beauty... Speaking about the way it looks, did I mention its outside is completely created with recycled materials?
------------
Who of you people have a dog? And who have a leach for walking with man's best friend? If any of you ever had to get out at night or in another dark situation for your dog, this might be a green gadget for you... It's a leach that also creates energy...

The leach with 3 holes for the LED lights

The mechanism produces its power when the leach is rolled in or out, so actually all the time... That power is used as an energysource for a flashlight, which has been build in the thing... There are 2 strong leds which lighten the road (downwards) and 1 which illuminates what's in front of you.
With this leach you will never step in another pair of droppings when going out at night...
 Just like the previous one, there isn't a price for it yet, but I'm sure it will sell good if the price is reasonable... I'm just waiting for a version to come out with a build in fan for hot walks and a usb port for your music... Well who knows...

That's all of it... And probably also the last time you'll have green gadgets from me in a while (unless you guys want me to review more of them, just let me know in the comments :D )

So remember, green power is everywhere!

See ya next time =D

  18. Whaaaaaaaaaat!? Besides being green, this is really practical and useful. My phone dies way too fast because I'm always on FB or Twitter, making phone calls, and texting. Sometimes I carry my phone charger when I chill at Starbucks. It looks a bit unbecoming. Having a small, almost wireless device is perfect. For $40 bucks as well? I'm sold. :D

  31. The dog leash is pretty cool. Since it creates a little energy, it's good that it has LEDs :)
