Orange Launches the Sound Charge T Shirt

Just in time for the opening of the Glastonbury Festival, is the launch of an interesting idea from the mobile phone service Orange. It is the Sound Charge T Shirt and it does exactly what it sounds like, it uses sound waves to produce energy, in fact enough energy to charge a mobile phone or even a Smartphone and at a festival where there is no mains power this is invaluable.

Unfortunately, Orange will only be testing this product at the festival this year, but for Orange customers looking for a bit of a charge up there are three Orange Chill ‘n’ Charge tents located around the site.

According to Andrew Pearcey, who is the Head of Sponsorship at Orange UK,

“In a vibrant festival environment such as Glastonbury, sound is such an obvious medium that it seemed like a natural fit to use it in the development of this year’s prototype. Orange’s commitment and ethos around innovation is as strong as ever and we envisage that this pioneering technology could really change the face of mobile charging in environments where eco charging solutions need to be found. It could even influence trends in fashion, with designers looking to integrate this passive charging solution into clothing.”
