Breast Energy Answered

Everywhere we turn, people are looking for new sources of renewable energy. Using the body to charge small electronics is nothing new; as Treehugger points out, Instructables has its very own breath-powered USB charger. But Adrienne So had a slightly different idea: she wanted to charge her iPod during exercise using the movements of her breasts as a power source.

The idea may sound ludicrous, but her research shows that it might actually be viable. Make sure to check out all of the links in the article--besides So's original idea, she sheds light on many interesting developments in the realm of renewable energy. You never know where the next energy-saving idea will come from.




" But Adrienne So had a slightly different idea" Did you make a copy/paste error?

Will the piggishness never cease?

Give it a rest Adrian. This isnt just for this purpose. The original idea was to make pants out of that type of fabric, to recharge cellphones or other accesories while you run or walk. This is just another way to use it.

All that is needed is a body area where a lot of friction is created. This is simply one area of the body that creates friction.

You're being a bit immature about this......

No, I'm not. Just because I have a different idea of modesty does not mean I should "give it a rest". You give it a rest. You're one to talk about being immature!

Nothing, except when you're rude. I am rather tired of people telling me to be quiet and give it a rest and shut up. I shan't.

Fine. Express your sole opinion. Because you're the sole one with such an opinion. I think it's a good idea. Think about it. What other place... moves... as much as... well... them...?

Thank you for your kind permission, I would never have done it had you not told me it was okay.

Oh, now we're using the sarcasm tag?

Your opinion on this whole thing makes so much sense

Just as much sense as yours. Please stop mocking me for my opinion.

Just as much sense as yours
Really? Your point is based upon piggishness which is an opinion that you, and obviously only you, hold.
I'm not mocking you, I'm making my point. It just so happens that my point is against yours.

No, more people than I think this is piggish. I am not the only one on the planet. Please leave me alone on this. Don't keep saying I shouldn't feel about it as I do. I'm not telling you you can't say it's cool. I'm merely expressing my view.

As am I. I am merely making my point. More people think it's piggish? I don't see anyone else on this thread speaking up. Oh, besides Labot2001. But he doesn't count.

Yes, he does count. And surely instructables is not the only place people know about this. Since when does the majority have to hold an opinion to make it right? I have heard you say this exact same thing, skate. If, in 1776, the colonists had submitted to the opinion of the majority, we would still be under British rule.

... Joke...

But that was on a different subject. You're right, I have said it (I.E. Religious wars) but this time it's not a war of fact vs. supposed fact.
This time it's opinion (no evidence needed) vs. Opinion (no Evidence needed)

But they were under oppression. Are you under an oppression? No. You just don't like something that generates energy using a moving body part.

PS There's no such thing as being "under an oppression".

Adrian, I appreciate your opinion. You are right to express it. It shows intestinal fortitude. It makes you a great American. ON THE OTHER HAND, I am a guy.... Piggish? Yes! Undeniably titalating? Yes. I'm sorry, but us guys can't help it. We are slaves to the ......

Thank you! You're the first guy who hasn't acted like I'm stupid for having a contrary opinion!

See, skate? even skunkbait admits it's piggish! :)

And as a woman, I think I would know a thing or two about how women would feel about this product!

Skate, this is silly. First of all, there is no right or wrong here. It's a matter of opinion. The only wrong is to suppress the opine of another. But the opinion of the majority in 1776 was that the colonists were NOT under oppression! The point is valid. And, I would argue that I am under opression, albeit minor; people are trying to deny me my first amendment rights!

I'm not DENYING you them. I'm simply Exercising my own.

Sorry I'll stay out of it, i just did a bit of profile reading and now I know why ....

Is it because of
Gender: FEMALE
Or something on my Profile?

My Profile?
Is it the RC cars, office supplies weapons, explosions, and television. Airsoft, hunting, and Instructables, atheism?

Do we have to torture you to accelerate the acquisition of a more detailed answer ???????

You two gotta stop argueing they are just a set of Mammary gland, actually they are just modified sweat glands and both Males and Females have them only on most Males they are not full developed... Get over it, It's what makes us Mammals..........

Thanks you. They are just parts. Why not use them to generate electricity? That is no different than running on a treadmill like thing and having it generate electricity.

Adrian made me use tags because we always end up fighting about jokes. Nag!!!!!

saw this one coming......... whats next... do you really want to know.. o.0

Seconded. This "form" of renewable energy is a bit immodest, not to mention downright weird.

Estoy, whatever! I meant "I AM"!

I don't see anyone jumping down chooseausername's throat when he makes an english mistake! It's hard learning spanish from a book!

....I didn't "Jumo down anyone's throat", I was simply asking what that was. I really didn't understand waht happened. What do you have against me?!

I know, I know...I'm sorry. I thought you were being sarcastic to show how dumb I was-I shouldn't have assumed that of you. I guess I'm a bit on edge, but that's no excuse. It's not you, really, it's just that EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD corrects my spanish, even spanish NOOBS, talking about how I need to learn better spanish, and how I'm speaking "gringo spanish"-you have no IDEA how badly I hate that, and it's enough to make me honestly hate spanish. Everyone I talk to is just so uptight about using correct and proper and formal court spanish! Sorry...:( I have nothing at all against you. Honestly.

I'll tell you how I learned english:

  • At about age 3 or 4, I started watching Blues Clues. I didn't understand a word they said, but there were pretty colors.
  • We didn't have cable TV for almost 2 years
  • At age 5 or 6, I started watching spongebob. The first few months I didn't really understand a lot of what they said. By the time I was 6 or 7 (really, a few months are the difference) I could speak english fluently.
  • Ever since I can remember, my dad asked me the meaning of certain words in english. I thought he was jsut dumb, but he was really teaching me english.
  • Since there weren't many children around my home (just a bunch of old people *shrug*) I spent a lot of time watching TV.

SO, summing it all up, I can easily say that Spongebob taught me english!

And about everyone correcting you, just say thanks. As long as they are just correcting you, its good. If they throw it in your face, try insulting them in spanish. Ibles staff (as far as I know) isn't too fluent in spanish. I can help you out with that. Or you could try french. I love insulting in french.

If I correct you, take it that I'm trying to help you. I'm very picky about grammar, and hate it when people don't capitalize!!!!!

Maybe I should watch spanish tv then...they do have spanish audio options on my satellite...I'll check into that. Maybe Spongebob could teach me spanish! I know he is called bob esponja in the spanish version... Well, it's not well meaning people at ALL, it's people being downright mean and nasty, people who are trying to put me down a peg and themselves up one. I do sometimes tell them "quieta la boca" (I probably didn't spell that right). Any other (clean!) insults I could try?? Please do correct me if I make atrocious mistakes, I welcome opportunities to improve. Just not when people ram it down my throat. But you didn't do that. :) May I say, your english is impeccable, it's better than some native english speakers I know!

Personally, I downright hate Spanish Tv and movies. And I mean hate I much prefer English TV.

Instead of "Quieta la boca (=still the mouth) Try, Callate la boca! (=Shut your mouth! or..Shut up!)

May I say, your English is impeccable, it's better than some native English speakers I know!

Aw shucks! You may. Like I said I much prefer the English language (no offense Spanish, but all you offer are soap operas!)

That fact is what has allowed me to learn English. In Kindergarten (Kindergarden? Firefox says it's the first one....) other kids asked me how to say "may I go to the bathroom" every single day, because our English teacher said they had to say it in English.

In my opinion, they were all *Insult cleaning* dummies.
