Orange's pump charger puts your two left feet to good use

You've little over a month to get your plans sorted for this year's Glastonbury Festival, and as any techno-pagan worth his salt knows, finding power for all those gadgets as you dance your ass off in a big field for five days can be a challenge in and of itself. Luckily, it looks like the fine folks at Orange UK have taken it upon themselves to serve this niche market every year, as evidenced by the likes of last year's Dance Charge and this year's Power Pump. It's pretty straight forward -- the foot pump drives a turbine, which powers a tiny generator. According to the company's groovy PR, the turbine will generate enough energy to power 5 minutes of call time in the time it takes to inflate your pillow. No word yet on retail availability, so look out for it at the company's tent. Rave on!
