Orange hopes to harness the wind to charge your mobile


With O2's recent green move, it seems Orange has cried "me too" and hopped on the enviro-friendly train. The Orange commissioned turbine -- which will be unveiled at the Glastonbury festival this week -- weighs just 150 grams and can be mounted on a tent where it will spin and charge some type of battery pack. Once your day of hard trekking is done, simply plug your mobile into the device, and voila, instant power while far from home. While we are fairly confident that O2 just looked for something to let them into the sponsorship inner circle at the Glastonbury Festival, that doesn't stop us from wanting one -- but make ours hat-mounted, thanks.
