    Why not a solution all it's own

    A Jiggle Battery, just like the flashlights you jiggle to power on

    That way even when your playing a game, or if your running and it's in your pocket it will be charging

    Sure it will make the iDevice a little bigger but place like 10 of those things inside of it that are all small so when the iDevice gets tilted they slide creating a charge, of course they will need to be placed at different angles to work better cause no one wants to constantly flip there iDevice, but if you shake it for say 30 sec you get 5-10 more min just like the flashlights

    Invent that

    he should of made a hat you wear with a pinwheel on it that charges the phone
    or a soda drinking hat that has a fan
    the possibilities are endless!

    really though, i see it more as a battery life extender
    every time you are outside, and you pull it out of your pocket, you are going to wake it from sleep mode, where it will last for days anyway
    the supplemental energy from the fan will lengthen your battery life at the times when the phone draws the most power from the battery

    This idea is for the few but marketed to the masses. The only people who might be remotely interested in this are talking bears (who subsequently have iPhone 4's), people in windy cities (Chicago, SF... oh wait, they both have electricity, too?), and people who hike to get away from society (but apparently not their iPhones). Other than that, we have these amazing, long, thin cables that'll do the work for you if you're around an outlet or computer. I forget what they're called, however, so just get a inconvenient-fan-a-mabob.

    Seems like it would be more or an attachment for on the go. I'm not shaking anything so it flies out of my hand.

    Is this 6 hrs under high winds? If so, you need to live in a tornado to get this to charge. And who walks around with a spinning fan on their iPhone?

    The only use for this device is if your stranded somewhere and need it to charge your iPhone enough to make an emergency call.

    I could see myself using this when I go camping at Kings Canyon by Sequoia because we listen to the iPod all day long.

    Sighing at people who have no respect to this great invention. Why people look at this just within their own boundaries ?

    For instance, this will be a great gadget for bikers and it's wireless!! They don't have to attach bloody generator anymore. Furthermore, this can be utilised for many other applications.

    Imagine kids

    You would have to shake it way too much to make it usable. iDevices eat up a ton more juice than flashlights.

    As previously mentioned in this thread, they already have them. Although I'm uncertain as to whether or not there is an updated model for the 4th gen line.
