Wearable AMPY turns motion into energy to charge your special devices

AMPY Move 2

For better or worse, being plugged in at all times has become practically an obsession in our society. That means we’re constantly seeking new and easier ways to charge our many devices. The AMPY MOVE is a wearable motion charger that could be your next best choice.

We produce energy when we move – be it walking, jogging or even nervously tapping one foot. AMPY is a portable smartphone battery that captures and charges the kinetic energy we produce when in motion. Convenient as a back-up travel or emergency charger for small electronic devices, AMPY’s best initially charged via electric plug in, then simply take it and go.

Just place it on the part of your body that’s moving the most – legs, arms, etc. – or toss it in your bag or backpack during a hike. Indicator lights show how fully charged it is. You can check in with the companion app to see how much energy you’re generating and using too. For only $129 you can get this cool device and the wearable accessory kit. Sounds like a great innovation – and a productive use of your burned-off energy
