iFan: New gadget uses wind power to charge iPhone

iFan powers iPhone

Designer Tjeerd Veenhoven from the Netherlands has come up with an amazing gadget for the green minded—and we’re not talking about the solar powered straw hat!

With the iFan, users can recharge their iPhone using wind power. It’s really just a modified cooling fan from a desktop PC and then wrapped in a nice soft feel cover —but hey, it works.

Veenhoven admits that the contraption is still very much a prototype and it takes around six hours of breeze to fully juice up his phone. However, he can “shave off many charging hours by redesigning the fan blades, making it more efficient in catching the wind while sun bathing at the beach, doing walking trips in the mountains or just holding it outside a car window while driving along….”
