The world has undergone a lot of technological changes with an array of portable electronic gadgets purchased over the globe. The only drawback of using electronic devices is that of the utility bills. To cope up such a situation, industrial designers have begun creating eco-friendly products to help devices operate with renewable energy. Cindy Karimun, an industrial designer has come up with a new eco-friendly product, Turning Power Charger, a device that uses kinetic energy to get its power.
This concept charger, resembling the shape of a water drop, is based on the theory of electromagnetic induction. All we have to do is just to keep turning the charger until the inside spring is tightened and released. Through the friction of this turning motion, all energy generated during the process is stored in a built-in battery, which can later be transferred to your portable devices through USB port. “Turning Power Charger” also includes 3 LED bulbs that light up to notify the user about the charging condition, and automatically off after fully charged.

With this concept cast, you can read those messages on the display system, it also connects you to the health care service system and displays messages from doctors/hospitals such as appointment reminders.
