Latest Invention: Helmet that Charges Cell Phones Using Solar and Wind Power


If you like this invention you can vote for it here.The latest invention coming from Pragnesh Dudhaiya and Aalok Bhatt, two students studying electrical engineering at the Nirma University in Ahmedabad, is a helmet that can be used as a cell phone charger.

By harnessing solar and wind energy, the helmet is able to charge a cell phone in about 40 minutes. The students announced that they are going to file for a patent for their latest invention. It is worth mentioning that the number of accidents in the city increases and more people get serious injuries due to the fact that they do not wear helmets, reports SiliconIndia.

According to Pragnesh and Aalok, their helmet will motivate people to use head protection while on the road. To be able to come up with the innovation, the students needed only three days. During the day the helmet uses solar energy to charge a cell phone, and at night it harnesses wind energy. Pragnesh mentioned that the price for helmet will be Rs. 1,000 (about $22).

There are electric motorcycles and bicycles that can go between 45-100 MPH for 45-100 miles. I would love to see someone come out with a solar suite, that can produce heat for winter drives, as well as extra power for the electric cycle. I like this helmet concept but it is not heated and exposes your face to the wind. Does this charge things directly or from stored energy from a lithium-ion battery?
