Charging the iPhone with an Epiphany One PuckBelow is an infographic depicting some very cool energy tech – each of which was crowdfunded.  This is a great display of how crowdfunding is not only disrupting traditional funding channels but it is bringing to market some truly incredible products.  Many of these may have never been supported financially without the benefit of crowdfunding sites.

The list below includes:

Tegwear a one square inch thermoelectric generator that converts heat from your skin into electricity.

Ecobutton a physical button which plugs into a USB port to turn off your device.

Soccket – a soccer ball like device that is a portable generator which turns kinetic energy into electricity.

Epiphany onE Puck – takes a hot or cold drink and uses the heat disparity to create energy, doubles as a coaster.
