In Soviet Russia, Wood Powers You!
Well more like in a place trying to break away from Russia, but totally awesome nonetheless. Apparently some Chechen troops hiding in the woods had no electricity to charge their cell phones, so they made a manual-powered one from wood. That’s because you can’t really wage war without keeping in touch with friends and family, or even texting insults to the enemy (that reportedly happens between Philippine government and rebel troops).
Anyways, it’s hard to decipher the Russian, but from all appearances, the wooden cell phone charger contraption converts human energy into electric through some dynamo-thingy. And if I’m not mistaken, those are old-school and latest edition Nokia chargers plugged up to the whole setup. Thanks to English Russia for sharing the awesomeness with the English-speaking world!
