Nokia Green Conceptual Phone

The Chinese designer "Daizi Zheng" designed a conceptual eco-friendly phone for Nokia. The phone uses bio-batteries instead of conventional phone batteries which are pollution free and ecologically friendly. Recently we have seen that industrial designers leaded to design devices that consume green energy as an alternative to the harmful to the environment energies. The PowerTrekk and the Window Solar chargers are some good examples of such devices. According to the Daizi Zheng, the batteries of this Nokia concept phone use enzyme as a catalyst to generate electricity from carbohydrates. In the other words this phone consumes sugar to charge itself. All you need to do is pour a small amount of sugary drink like coca cola (although the mixed sugar and water also does the trick) into the phone and start calling your friends. At the end when the battery dies only oxygen and water remains. These bio-batteries have a potential lifespan three to four times more than conventional lithium batteries. So if you didn’t know what to do with your left over sodas then this phone could be your solution! Daizi Zheng is a talented Chinese industrial designer who holds a BA in Product Design from the Central Saint Martins’ College of Art and Design, London.
