Helmet to charge mobile phones
Came across this article and I think this is pretty innovative. Just thought of sharing with all. Nice to see enterprising kids and colleges that encourage such ideas.

Ahmedabad: Two Ahmedabad students, Pragnesh Dudhaiya and Aalok Bhatt of Nirma University, have designed a helmet that doubles up as a mobile phone charger. This helmet charges a mobile in 40 minutes by using solar and wind energy, reports Shraddha Singh of Bangalore Mirror.
Dudhaiya and Bhatt who are final-year students of electrical engineering are planning to file a patent for their innovation. This is an attempt by the students to bring down the number of accidents caused due to people not using helmets while driving. "The number of accidents in the city is on the rise. Two-wheeler drivers who don't wear protective head gear face a greater risk," says Pragnesh.
Three days is all that the students took to create this new generation helmet. "We designed it when our college was hosting a 'green fest'," Pragnesh said. Emphasizing on energy saving using this helmet, he says that during daytime, the helmet would use solar energy to charge a cellphone attached to it, while in the night, it would use wind energy. "It will cost Rs. 1,000, a small price to pay for safety as well as convenience," he added
