Rub to charge / Mobile Phone

Rub to charge
Rub to charge

How many times a day do you wipe your mobile phone?

Mobile phones became a necessity for modern people. As much as you use your mobile phone, the battery runs out fast as well. To recharge it, we always have t carry the recharger and look for an electrical outlet to plug it in. How helpful would it be, if what we do unconsciously every time we use mobile phone will recharge the phone? 'Rub to charge' will recharge by the rubbing motion, by pressure. Not just by motion, but we expressed it visually as well. As the battery runs out, spots will appear on the screen to make people rub their mobile phone, which will recharge it.
