This chair creates electricity through the user's movement

We constantly need to find new ways to charge our phones — mobile charges, waterproof chargers and everything in between. But a uniquely designed chair tether users somewhere instead of giving them more mobility. The idea: let users easily charge their phone by sitting on a chair.

But not just any average chair: Designer Nathalie Teugels created the moov chair, a furniture piece that charges users’ phones with their movement.

According to the Nteugels tumblr, the “presence of piezoelectric crystals or pressure sensors” turns human energy into electricity to charge a digital device. The chair helps keep the user entertained—not only can the movement charge a device, it will keep the sitter moving.
