Yes, it is true! The future predicted by “Matrix” is coming without the Apocalypse. Humanity pf the XXI century needs constant and transportable personal #energy sources. A multitude of our gadgets have high energy consumption, so we need to recharge them, in order to stay mobile persons in our modern world. For this reason, the age of smart personal gadgets became the age of transportable energy sources as well. Anyway, transportable chargers were not effective enough, because they were also dependent on constant energy sources. Solar energy recharge solution gives us more mobility but not full independence, because, unfortunately, the sun shines mostly less than 14 hours per day.

And now one of the best solutions seems to have been found!

A group of enthusiasts with a technical background has presented the Kickstarter HandEnergy charger, which transforms the energy of our bodies into electricity and stores it, so you will be able to charge your #Smartphone, tablet and gadgets anytime and anywhere!

How the hand energy works?

The generator works with human wrist movement. You need to turn it on and release the starter ring. It will transmit an impulse to the rotor. Then, rotate the Hand Energy generator with your wrist in order to keep the rotor spinning. Of course, energy could not be produced if static. You need to put a little effort on rotation with the average speed of 5000 RPM ( about 0.536 Horsepower). The magnetic rotor transmits mechanical power to the stator and produces an electric current, charging the built-in batteries.

With this stored energy you will be able to charge via USB Output 5V 1A your smartphone, action camera, tablet, smartwatch, flashlight, tracker, e-book or speakers. The charger developed by Be.energy is very compact and looks like an apple or a Pokeball. This is the most efficient electricity generator adapted for our hands.

Moreover, it is eco-friendly and produces totally clean energy. You can also train your hands with wrist movement, which is very useful for people who spend a lot of time working with a computer.

HandEnergy has the same current as when you charge devices from the socket. However, to charge the battery with this charger by rotating takes a bit longer due to lower current from generation. Be.energy has even developed the App for this charger, which allows you to track the generation and share it with friends.

The future of dynamo machine chargers

As long as major corporations are not able to find the extensive solutions to recharge their gadgets, such an indie idea could be developed and become more and more popular.

Of course, it is hard to imagine the world where people are constantly doing charging exercises but, anyway, this could be the perfect solution for some people who are looking for energy back-ups like travelers and nightlife fans. Moreover, augmented reality apps developers could use the rotation idea or rotor generator technology to create a game, that has no harm on smartphone's battery but helps to charge it. #Kickstarter
