Hungry Batteries: Rechargeable Battery Concept

It would be so helpful if there is a set of rechargeable batteries that change forms to tell you how “hungry” it is.

The thinner it is, the emptier the battery is. When it’s full, it’s just as straight as a normal battery.

Another merit is that when it’s thin, it’s much easier to take out from a packed battery room, especially if there are multiple betteries packed tight in line. Fat batteries don’t need to be changed anyway.

I like Fandi Meng‘s great “Sunny Flower” concept very much and was inspired a lot by the design.

It’s a solar charger for an iPhone. Based on Fandi’s design, I made it work also as an iPhone stand.

Sway, Charge & Study
Swing this many times and you get some electricity to charge your iPhone. This time, its motion censor sends your form data to your iPhone so that you can see your own golf swing animated.
