Atlas Kinetic phone forces you to move

This concept would be powered by the body's movement.

Remember the Bang & Olufsen Serene that looks like a modern art museum piece? Designer Ricardo Baiao's Atlas Kinetic concept cell phone takes that bizarre look to a whole new level, with a power source that's just as unusual. It's like one of those Seiko Kinetic watches that make use of oscillating weight to power a mainspring, except that this one provides basic phone features and allows you to make calls and send text messages. There's no danger of self-destructing lithium cells, so perhaps Nokia may want to snap up one of these as part of its Eco Sensor concept. It just needs to do something with that wacky keypad layout.
