Hundreds of gallons of water are used daily in an urban home. No matter you use it for washing, cleaning, gardening or simply for a relaxing shower, eventually most of that water goes down the drain. The inventor Jin Woohan came up with an ingenious idea to power your gadgets with nothing other than water flowing though the taps.
Jin has developed a device which he calls the Mini Hydro Turbine that uses water pressure to power a turbine that generates enough energy for charging a mobile phone or any other portable gadget. The electricity generated can either be used directly by connecting the turbine to a wall outlet or can be used to charge batteries for future use. Thus the user of such a device can make shower and at the same time to charge his phone.
