• Febot feeds on wind to energize the batteries on the go

    The first thing that most of us put in our baggage while packing for a holiday is a rechargeable battery charger. And if you have kids along then this one is a must as most of the toys run on the AA rechargeable batteries. Korean designers Ji-yun Kim, Soon-young Yang & Hwan-ju Jeon have stuck out a green Febot for the same purpose. Shaped like a torpedo with wings, this eco-friendly device grabs up the energy of wind to recharge a single battery. Simply stick it out of the window and pray that the wind blows. The trio have managed to shape up a green charging gadget that promises fully charges batteries on the go. But who will take care of the blowing the wind in its direction? I suggest that the designers should have also fitted the Febot with a solar panel that could at least make use of some solar energy in case of non-windy days!
