Mobile phones driven by doodle power
When you ring someone, or they ring you; do you reach for a pen and idly doodle away on a random but handy piece of paper?
Why not harness this power by fitting a dynamo in the nib of a biro? A wire connected directly to the mobile phone refuels the battery; everyones a winner.

Biro was a Hungarian. God bless 'im. [Spidergoat, Jun 06 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]
