Two Ahmedabad students, Pragnesh Dudhaiya and Aalok Bhatt of Nirma University, have designed a helmet that doubles up as a mobile phone charger. This helmet charges a mobile in 40 minutes by using solar and wind energy, reports Shraddha Singh of Bangalore Mirror.
Dudhaiya and Bhatt who are final-year students of electrical engineering are planning to file a patent for their innovation. This is an attempt by the students to bring down the number of accidents caused due to people not using helmets while driving. “The number of accidents in the city is on the rise. Two-wheeler drivers who don’t wear protective head gear face a greater risk,” says Pragnesh.
