Valery Spiridonov proposed to use humans as a battery charger for phone

According to experts, in the context of constant increase in world population and energy consumption of similar ability are attracted to its eco-friendliness and other advantages.

Spiridonov said that the man is constantly producing kinetic movement their movements and heat — the very fact of its own existence as a living organism. The engineer recalls that for a study of the effectiveness of the person as “power plant” there is a whole research area called electrophysiology.

Spiridonov says that man, strolling leisurely pace, generates the enough energy to nourish the bulb in 60 watt and even the phone. While resting person generates about 100 watts of energy when doing sports — up to 2 thousand watts. Thus, it is only necessary hardware, which could absorb the energy and redirect it to the different tasks.

In this case, the engineer says that, in many countries, similar technology is already developing rapidly. In particular, in France the body heat of commuters passing under social housing, is used for heating the building. In the Tokyo subway, where every day there are hundreds of thousands people, placed turnstiles with piezoelectric elements that allows to collect “energy of the flow of people.” The Netherlands has door-generators at the entrance to the Mall, and in some countries you can buy bicycles, playing the role of transformer.

Valery Spiridonov is known to a wide audience in the first place, the fact that previously Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero has been chosen as the person that could be carried out the first ever transplant of scalp. However, recently it became known that this operation has been cancelled or at least postponed indefinitely.

A recent poll conducted by the Russian center for public opinion research, showed that 97 percent of adult population of Russia is, at least one mobile phone.
