• Tusk system generates energy while you walk

  • tusk_02.jpgSoon, the source to power up your smartphone or portable music player could be your very own body! With technology like the Tusk system, designed by Jerry Mejia, the energy expelled by the human body could soon be put to better use. Using rotary dynamos, rectifiers and linear regulators, the Tusk system generates energy by using the user’s walking pattern, converts it all into electricity and juices up portable devices like smartphones and music players. Also, this could work pretty well particularly for those who spend a larger part of their time outdoors on foot or on bicycles.

    However, the Tusk remains a concept for now, though the world is sure to welcome it with arms wide open if it ever hits production lines.
