Cool New iPod Technology

I just read about an awesome new technology that is surfacing that may change the way we carry and charge our iPods for years to come. Apparently, there's this new thing called a 'nanogenerator' that will allow us to shake an object to charge it. I've seen this in flashlights, but this is a lot more advanced. You can even charge an iPod by simply touching it - the mechanical energy that comes from the blood flowing through your body will be converted into electrical energy; enough to charge your device! This would be amazing to see first-hand. Wouldn't it be great to know that you're charging up your iPod while taking a run as opposed to draining its battery? Additionally, this is also a great thing for the environment, as thousands of toxic batteries are disposed every day. I'm looking forward to it, and hope to see it in the market soon. - Gene
