Bright kid. In more ways than one – the Hollow Torch

I was wondering if wearing special clothing, say, an undergarment (I mean, clothes worn under the visible clothes), could produce enough to power a smart phone?

    Excellent start.. A useable flashlight will need to produce a beam of light, not just light up 3 LED’s……..But again…excellent thinking by a 15 year old. Does it worry anyone else that in NZ many 15 year olds can bearly read!

    Excellent Innovation. Looks like with a bit more investment you could increase the tiled area too

    Love the most upvoted comment.

    It will need to come with a disclaimer for Helen Kelly and Darien Fenton, as they are colder than a reptile – sadly the torch would be unlikely to work.
