Power in your pocket

School students from Erlangen say bye-bye to charger cables and power blocks.

Business idea
The dream of every smartphone user: no more empty batteries! The Kabibe team from Erlangen spotted this gap in the market and came up with the idea of a laminated mobile phone cover that converts heat to power using thermodynamics The advantage: it protects your smartphone and simultaneously charges it without a cable in sight, for instance in direct sunlight, or even just by carrying it around in your pocket. And by using renewable energy it won't impact the environment either. Made from recycled plastic, it's no thicker or heavier than a conventional cover.
