Georgian students have invented a wristband device that charges a cellular phone by shaking an arm. The project has won the Leonardo Da Vinci competition of inventors and researchers and was introduced to the Inter Isef contest in the USA.
The invention developed by Giorgi Shelegia and Amiran Aptsiauri is named as Follow Me.
“Our invention is based on the electric magnetic field dielectric displacement method and uses copper spiral and magnets and these spirals generate energy in the process of shaking an arm”, Amiran Aptsiauri told the Business Morning.
At this stage, the young inventors are waiting for obtaining a due patent on their own invention. Pupils from more than one million secondary schools were represented in the US contest of inventors from all over the world. The Georgian inventors reached the final stage jointly with more than 1000 other inventors.
In the near period, the Georgian inventors plan to upgrade their device. At this stage, the invention consists of a belt and a wristband in Scandinavian style. As a final product, the invention will only maintain the wristband component.
