LONDON, UK – It’s not been too long since the concept of sustainability has been exposed. Since then, many scientists, developers, investigators and even manufactures have tried to apply this concept to their products.

In the case of cell phones companies, there already exists cellphones or accessories capable of generating their own power from different renewable sources such as solar, wind or hydrogen. The Samsung E1107 is an example of this situation, thanks to a solar panel on its back capable of providing enough energy for about 5 to 10 minutes of talk-time for each hour of charging. Or the pocket-sized turbine that can be attached to a cellphone as an accessory in order to take advantage of the wind power.

However, Chinese designer Daizi Zheng came up with a different idea – she designed an unusual sustainable cellphone powered by a Coca-Cola drink. At The Design Blog, the explanation of this unexpected idea can be read: “Designed for the Finnish brand Nokia, the Eco-Friendly cellphone runs on an innovative battery which makes use of enzymes to generate electricity from carbohydrates. The new mobile phone concept apart from harnessing clean energy from sugary drinks like Coke or Pepsi, which generates water and oxygen, also works about four times longer than contemporary lithium batteries on a single charge. Moreover, the handset is fully biodegradable”.

As the world as a whole attempts to save the planet in every way possible, starting with the most used electronic device in the world would not be a bad idea.
