Make your own bicycle mobile phone charger


More of us are getting on our bikes both for exercise and for a greener existence. And if you want to go further down that green route, you can build your own two-wheeled mobile phone charger.

The technology was developed by Motorola and has been shown off at various US events. But it’s apparently simple to set up. 24 ‘generators’ were made for the Coachella Music Festival’s Energy Factory exhibition – and the man who made all 24 (in just 10 days), Brad Whaley, has posted up instructions on how to make one on his website.

So if you’re feeling all eco-friendly this weekend or just want to cut your electricity bill, you should check it out.
