Abstract

Have you ever found the need to charge your devices on the go, but you don’t have a portable battery or maybe that’s just two much of a hassle to carry around. The YouCharge is the jacket that will help you out. The YouCharge is a jacket with the ability to turn your body heat into electricity. This will allow you to easily keep all of your devices powered on at all times, without the hassle of having to carry around a bulky portable charger. It banks off of your body’s natural body heat that you go around producing all day. Over the course of a waking, 16-hour day, the body gives off 5.6 million joules. Much of this energy is wasted, but YouCharge can capitalize on this. While this concept has been pulled off before in the form of Ann Makosinski’s body-heat powered flashlight. You charge takes this a step further and incorporates this into the fabric of a jacket. Since cell phones are almost always on someone’s person, having the technology take the form of a jacket is the obvious choice and allows for near constant charging.
