While I appreciate all the modern gadgetry that has been bestowed upon me, nothing beats a good old home made piece of kit. Chechen soldiers, who apparently spend extensively long days and nights in the woods built this dynamo-powered cell phone charger. Yanking on the string causes the pulley system to spin and in turn generate electricity, which is then sent to a capacitor that finally delivers the juice to the attached cell phone.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
