Dutch designer creates Moov chair that charges smartphone as you move

Nathalie Teugel, a Dutch designer has created a chair that charges your phone depending on how much you move. Get it? The fact that you don’t have to stay still in fact movement is mandatory is even better than the fact that this movement will lead to energy that charges your phone. Moov, the chair actually charges your phone or tablet while you sit down on it and move. This happens due to a scientific term called piezoelectricity effect wherein certain materials get the ability to generate an electric charge in response to applied mechanical stress like pressure or vibration.

The chair comes equipped with a battery where all the energy is stored and it’s connected to a USB outlet located at the armrest, making sure the phone is never too far away. Maverick idea this one!
