iYo YoYo - The yo-yo charger for your iPhone and iPod

iYo YoYo

Swedish designer Peter Thuvander has come up with the iYo YoYo, a nifty green alternative way to charge your iPhone or iPod.

"To celebrate my new Iphone and the fact that darkness is looming over me. I´ve done this: An induction powered yoyocharger for Apple.

And since solarchargers don't work at night or in Sweden half the year, this should be a smash hit."

Thanks to a small Li-ion battery inside the yo-yo you build up a charge while you play with the iYo YoYo. Afterwards you can just plug in your iPod or iPhone and it will be charged.

The real question with this gadget is if it is going to use more energy to produce then it will generate in its useful life. I am betting not. This is just another example of people using the "Green" idea to sell a wasteful, landfill-bound product. And besides, who really wants to yo-yo that much?
