Give It Some Welly

Orange yesterday unveiled these "Orange Power Wellies", a groundbreaking and innovative eco-friendly mobile phone charging prototype created to keep Glastonbury Festival goers connected with their friends across the weekend. The Orange Power Wellies, created in collaboration with renewable energy experts GotWind, use a unique power generating sole that converts heat from your feet into an electrical current. This welectricity can then be used to recharge your mobile phone. Orange, Official Communications Partner for the Glastonbury Festival, will be showcasing the Orange Power Wellies prototype onsite.

Twelve hours of stomping through the Glastonbury Festival in your Orange Power Wellies will give you enough power to charge a mobile phone for one hour. To increase the length of time you can charge your phone for, simply hot step it to the dance tent because the hotter your feet get, the more energy you produce.

Stylish eh?

  1. I would suggest to offer them for rent at the festival. Not only Glastonbury but also Bracken, Rock am Ring etc. If the party is over you could return them and get the money back or keep them for the garden work. I guess that wellies will be a step that leads to new ones.

  2. Actually "talking shite" is an Irish term that originates from the old Irish word for "English politician". Considering some of the calls I've received in my time it'd give the old meaning back to it. :up:

  3. "the hotter your feet get, the more energy you produce."At the same time, after spending entire day in those, your feet will became so smelly, you would probably make unrecoverable damage to ozone layer :yuck:

    Ok, then unrecoverable damage to people`s nostrils :faint:

  5. I bet nobody's trying these now that Glastonbury's baked solid this year 😀 The one year there's no mud! :lol:Of course, on a regular muddy Glastonbury it would take the wellies off and hurl your phone into the mud :p

  6. It's been around in Japan for a while now and quite standard too. Teenagers with phone-charging jeans make me jealous. :awww:
