Check this out! Orange have trialled a t shirt that also charges your mobile phone. The tee was designed with help from GotWind green energy experts and they came up with an A4 size piece of piezoelectric film on the front of the shirt. This absorbs the sound waves from the music at the festival, converting these into an electrical charge! Orange conducted live testing of the gadget on the site of Glastonbury around the ‘Spirit of 71’ stage where they tested the t shirt to see which acts were the best to help collect the electrical charge.
This looks great for other festivals throughout the summer – instead of queuing for hours at the recharging tent, now you can charge your phone just by wearing a t shirt – wow.
