We all know the term ECO means environment friendly, however, the ECOPad isn’t your ordinary “green” device.

Have you ever wanted to use your device non-stop without having to worry about being next to a wall outlet or a PC to charge your device? Well the ECOPad is the device you’ve been waiting for. The secret behind the Ecopad is NANO piezoelectricity film which collects power from every touch and swipe on the screen. Are you ready for a glimpse into the future of eco-friendly mobile devices?

 

Powered by either Android Honeycomb or Chrome OS, the Ecopad tablet concept comes from the creative mind of Jun-se Kim, Yonggu Do and Eunha Seo. As the diagram indicates, the slate incorporates a four-layer approach: LCD panel, NANO piezoelectricity film, battery and main components. The concept, although simple, is quite remarkable: the more you use the slate, the more battery power builds.

 

Now, my only question is, who do I have to email or call to have my G2x powered by this tech?

      then you’d better do a lot of rubbing before you start the movie..

    …..This will be killed by big business just like the electric car so many years ago…. battery manufacturers wont like this technology..its a nice dream though.

      It still has a battery. The nano film is what charges the battery.
