GEAR: CHARGE YOUR IPHONE WITH THE POWER OF YOUR BREATH

JOAO PAUL LAMMOGLIA AIRE

“Luke, I am your Charger”:

João Paulo Lammoglia is the creator of concepts that range from creating energy through alternate sources to a modern looking tattoo chair.

The alternate energy sources I just mentioned?  Oh, yeah.  Take a deep breath:

Now, exhale into the AIRE: A concept that uses the wearer’s breath to turn small wind turbines to charge your iPhone or other small electronic device.  Taken from João’s website:

“Among 3.550 candidates from 54 countries, AIRE has received the ‘’Red Dot Design Award: best of the best 2011.”

Ridiculous?  Maybe.

Practical?  That is another maybe.

These maybe’s are all depending upon whether the wearer doesn’t mind looking like a crazed, futuristic athlete while jogging or waking up in horror due to the fact that she forgot she fell asleep wearing this thing which causes her to never be able to watch “Fire in the Sky” again or talk about alien abductions.  Though, the AIRE can be effective for those uneventful late nights with friends sitting around blowing pot smoke out of the vents and taking turns doing their best Darth Vader impressions.

As interesting as the AIRE may seem, João’s direction to reduce energy dependence by converting every day actions into a source of energy is definitely something to appreciate.

Check out some of his other concepts here.
