Human Powered charger

Abstract

Smart phones are necessary for everyone in the 21st century. Yet when it comes to it's battery, it is not very smart. There is a tremendous amount of power in all humans, yet we run to the chargers every couple of hours of extensive use of the phone. Imagine if all our hustle, bustle, fidgeting and wasteful daily movements could be used to generate enough charge to fully charge our phones. Many people suffer from a lack of charge at disaster locations like Puerto Rico, Mexico, Texas and Florida within the United States itself. This is a disaster count in this year alone, and this could happen to any of us. We may be stuck away from home and a charger and desperate to make a phone call but unable to do so. To solve this basic problem, we could make a phone case that is used to charge the phone from human movements.
