cool but why not use a battery/
aviator189  +   795d ago
because you gotta buy batteries??
shivvy24  +   794d ago
so what happens if ur stuck in Antarctica ? yep ur fucked
aviator189  +   794d ago
well...then get batteries.

But I figure a very small portion of the population ventures to Antarctica.

Shivvy - your body temp and the outside temp would be significantly different, so it would work out better in the long run.
Speed-Racer  +   795d ago
Because we are trying to avoid battery usage.
RedHawkX  +   794d ago
im actually trying to use more batteries lol. just got a tooth brush and them gilette shavers that require batterys :P.

instead of trying to not use batterys how about we make batterys 10-20 times better.
vallencer  +   795d ago
Because batteries run out where as your body heat only goes away if you're dead or if you're extremely cold which usually means you're dead.

And what if you DO die, huh? What if you're dead and need a flashlight?

Didn't think that one though, did you?
steven83r  +   795d ago
Because you will want one of these if you are lost in the hills or in dire need of one and don't have batteries. Solar charging on this thing would be a good thing to add as well.

Because if she did she wouldn't have been able to do what she wanted to do-- making a flashlight that function out of the heat of the human hand.

Get it?

It's a good start so far.

First a girl invents a device that could charge your phone in 20 seconds, now this. Kind of embarrassing when you see the younger generation outdoing the grown-ups.
Azurite  +   795d ago
It's more things already found out but would be economic disasters for companies if put on the market.
steven83r  +   795d ago
Ya they are doing great things well some for that matter. Good to see not all teens are morons twerking all day and actually studying.
KwietStorm  +   794d ago
Yea leave the twerking to the adults.
webeblazing  +   795d ago

"Kind of embarrassing when you see the younger generation outdoing the grown-ups"

Right, it's not like adults are creating water-fueled engines, incredible genetic breakthroughs, etc.

Geez, get on their level, adults.

They need this tech for gaming controllers...come on Sony and Microsoft.
cyclindk  +   795d ago
Very good application of idea indeed, any remote really. Now make it happen son!

Kickstarter campaign BEGIN!!!
webeblazing  +   795d ago

SilentNegotiator  +   794d ago
It barely lit those LEDs...how would it reliably run a game controller?
Yehshuah  +   794d ago
she was trying to make a vibrator but ended up flashlight
nix  +   794d ago
at first i read it as fleshlight. lol.

ahem.. good girl. good girl.
iliimaster  +   794d ago
this could be used for runners at night for a body suit etc amazing what people come up with
hesido  +   794d ago
Some evil Texan company is patenting it as we speak. They will later sue the company that actually produces that suit.
Dogswithguns  +   794d ago
Nobody uses flashlights anymore.. Hello?!

Morpheus: The human body generates more bio-electricity than a 120-volt battery and over 25,000 BTU's of body heat.

just another technology for machines to use this against use!
GentlemenRUs  +   794d ago
Then some ass steals the idea and ™'s it so she can't do anything about it...

Lifes tuff!
RedHawkX  +   794d ago
so is justin bieber gonna date her now?
soccercta100  +   794d ago
That would be slightly illegal. Plus I doubt they would be able to hold the simplest of conversations without her wanting to stab him in the face with how retarded he is.
sdozzo  +   794d ago
Very cool. Keep up the good work!
