This product can trasform sounds or noise to Energy that we can use.

Place LISTENER beside anything that make sounds; it can be a TV, a phone, a speaker, or even a boobox.LISTENER features soundwave-capturing-membranes consisting of magnet sheets. The magnet sheets resonate the wave, and after a series of electromagnetic processes they bring us electricity, which in turn is stored in a well-desinged correspnding battery.
The battery has a USB socket which makes it capable of powering various of mobile devices. The whole design provides an efficient way to charge with a more "green" energy source, the soundwave in our everyday life.
