Indian Student develops a shoe that charges phones while walking

Rajesh Adhikari, a 12th class student from Nainital has created a shoe that can charge a mobile phone.

Adhikari stated that he got the idea of making the water proof charger due to heavy snowfalls in Nainital that usually led to power shutdown in the city for long hours. This inspired him to make a powerhouse out of a shoe that utilizes the energy generated out of the footwear when a person walks.

Apparently, the charger can also be used to light a bulb at home when there is no electricity by installing a battery in the shoe. Adhikari is now working on further modifications on the design that will make this shoe a wireless phone charger.

Adhikari explained, “When we raise our feet, the spring gets released and the dynamo starts revolving, which generates current. We can charge our mobile phones while we are walking.”

Recently, three Bangalore based engineering students launched a free voice calling service called FreeKall, for those who don’t have internet access. Registered users can make domestic and international calls for 12 minutes in 24 hours while un-registered users can make 3 minute calls. The service makes money by making people listen to 10 second advertisements every 2 minutes during calls. Freekall has tied up with a media agency called Streetsmart Media Solutions for the advertisements. Once the service goes live, registered users will be able to make unlimited calls. The company is aiming for nearly $30 million in revenue by the end of the next fiscal year.

Dhoni answers all his critics in fine style!… World reacts to MS Dhoni-inspired Indian victory

                                             Champion of champions

Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led India defeated South Africa by 22 runs in the second one-day international at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. Dhoni’s match-saving unbeaten 92 runs ensured India won’t fall again in front of the mighty visitors.

The home team managed to post a competitive total of 247 runs in the first innings with the Dhoni’s captain knock. The inspired Indian bowlers followed the captain and kept the energy level up when they came to field.

Initially, the South African team looked dangerous as Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock gave a thrilling knock like always. But soon, everything started to fall for the Proteas, Axar Patel was brought early in the attack and he didn’t disappoint the captain as charging Amla was beaten by his off side delivery and Dhoni did the rest to stump the batsman.

The Holkar stadium was charged and so were the eleven Indian players in the field. Bowlers kept giving taking wickets in intervals and eventually they restricted the South African at 225 to level the five-match series by 1-1.

The cricket fraternity took to twitter and congratulated team India especially Dhoni for his special innings which came in the aftermath of all the criticism over his career.

South Africa’s Robin Peterson went ‘wow’ over Dhoni’s knock:
