You get home from a long day at work and all you want to do is curl up on your couch and play some video games. You grab your controller and low-and-behold, its dead. You think, shit, now I have to either 1) charge the damn things but wait an hour or 2) get in my car and drive my ass down to the store to buy some. Well, now you could possibly add an option 3 in there: wind them up yourself! Introducing, the CONCEPT for, the Crank Up Battery (still only an idea). Now you can stay on the comfort of your couch but get a small workout at the same time. Just grab a battery and start winding it up. (Not a guarantee to build arm muscle). For 5 minutes of hard work you could have a 45% charged battery at your fingertips. But, if you feel like waiting you could always put them in their charger too. Either way, they are rechargeable. Designed by Qian Jiang, it is still just a concept but I like the idea of these things and I wouldn’t mind putting a little effort into charging them. Thanks Gizmodo for the find.
