Charge your iPhone, with your drinks
Running out of juice for your iPhone sucks. But this Kickstarter project just might have you covered. This is the Epiphany One Puck, its a coaster that uses extremes in temperature be it hot or cold to create electricity to charge your iPhone. Though not available yet I want one.
"Simply place a hot or cold beverage on the coasters surface and let the coaster do all the work.
To charge your phone as fast as possible the device works best with extremely hot or extremely cold drinks.
The Epiphany One Puck is not yet available, although a Kickstarter campaign is offering the opportunity to pre-order one of the devices for $115. Buyers on Kickstarter will also receive a customized iPhone coaster charger with engraved text.
The One Puck uses a Stirling engine which employs a fixed amount of gas that is sealed inside. Changes in temperature create pressure which in turns help power the unit."
