Piquing our geek – Wellies that charge your cell phone

Orange Power WelliesIf ever I needed a reason to buy new boots, Wellies has just given me one with their soon to be released Orange Power Wellies that uses the heat from your feet to charge your cellphone.

No, seriously.

The cool designers at Wellies and the renewable energy experts GotWind may seem like an unlikely pairing, but together they have teamed up
to create boots that will give your cellphone an hour of charge. All you do? What it is you usually do with shoes – wear them!

Now if you want all the particulars on how it works, you science geeks can head over to their site. I’m just happy that I can forget my charge at home on rainy days.. -Kristen

So, tell us – would you buy the Orange Power Wellies? We’d love to know!

    That’s hilarious! And genius! I have very hot feet, so I may have to check them out, even though I only like to wear Wellies in the rain.
