The link shows a rechargeable flashlight that recharges
shaking. It may have a gyroscope inside or it is just a
magnet that you shake back and forth. So these
things that recharge via movement, you could amplify
movement by putting them on bouncy springs, so if you
to wear alot of them you could have alot of energy but
not travel around so easily. But what is a few bouncy
flowers here and there, especially if they are powering
iPad so that you never have to forget the damn rechager
home and get to the party only to have a nonfunctional
to show off. Or also you could never have to get to the
party only to have the multicolored LED lightshow on your
bouncy clown flower lapel pin all of the sudden poop out,
just as that hot number was approaching...

solution? I keep running out of juice.

laws of energy conservation!
||Once in a while, you know, a little elementary maths
comes in handy.
||Right the idea is not valid as witten so let me try to rephrase:
||Take a recharger that you recharge by shaking and attach it to
your backpack at the end of a flexible rod so that as you march
all day, the recharger is waving back and forth in time with your
gait and the recharger is charging up. At the end of the day you
have enough stored energy to run your mobile electronics.
||Don't forget the "shake-weights" video...
||To address the objection of it being unweildy to have a bouncey
pole sticking out of your backpack all day: you would be losing
energy overall, although probably not much, and I imagine you
would quickly adapt to the extra potential for energy storage and
might even be able to lean to use it to your advantage over rough
||It must be that time of year or something, but taping those to the appropriate parts of (for example) a pole dancer would boost your green kudos and off-set carbon footprint.
