Roll Charger   Leave a comment

Inspired by Chinese baoding balls, Shanghai designer Jiang Qian has created a kinetic charger that juices up your batteries all while fixing that pesky carpal tunnel.

The aptly named Roll Charger harnesses energy from the ball’s motion. It converts that kinetic energy into electricity. That electricity is then used to charge a single battery within the ball.


In traditional Chinese medical theory, baoding balls work much like acupuncture or shiatsu massage. They stimulate acupuncture points in the fingers which are connected to organs like the heart, liver, spleen, lungs, kidneys, gallbladder, stomach and intestines.

And now they can charge the batteries to your remote control too!
