This Week's Chitter Chatter - a New Smartphone from Huawei and Charging Your iPhone on the Move
Charging up your phone when you're out and about can be a bit of a nightmare especially if you're dashing around and never in one place long enough to get to a socket. A new and rather fantastic invention could be just the solution and it will also encourage you to keep moving which could be a handy bit of motivation for those looking to improve their fitness also. A bunch of techies in the USA have designed the iMoveCharger which essentially uses your movement to charge up your iPhone. All you have to do is connect up your iPhone to the iMoveCharger and carry on moving! It's also compatible with a whole host of other smartphones as it comes with a set of adapters and you can select the appropriate voltage for your particular handset.
And whilst we're on the subject of new inventions, if your kids are a bit young for a mobile phone or are prone to losing things, a great new gadget has been invented which enables you to keep in touch with your kids and keep tabs on where they are. The Tinitell is a wristband device specifically designed for kids to wear. Simple and easy for children to use, they can contact their parents by using the buttons or by voice recognition. Tinitell has built-in GPS so parents can also find out where their kids are at any given time using the accompanying smartphone app. Designed with kids in mind, there's a large button in the centre to chose the Tinitell features and it's also waterproof. Watch this space for more information on the Tinitell as we have it.
