Mobile phones driven by doodle power
  [vote for,

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.
