Something that looks very similar to a mixture between the BB-8 and the Sphere from Independence Day: Resurgence launched on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform this week.

It is called HandEnergy but unlike the Sphere or the BB-8, it has been designed to charge your device with gyroscopes and kinetic energy instead of helping you battle aliens, or otherwise malicious characters.

It can charge a variety of devices from smartphones all the way up to tablets.

To use it, you need to wind the starter ring in order to transmit an impulse to the rotor, after which they rotate the device with their wrist to keep the rotor spinning, at which point, it will transmit mechanical power to create an electrical current and then charge its built-in batteries.

Then you plug in your device’s USB charger and you are ready to get charging.

Check out the video below for a quick look at HandEnergy, you can also hit up the source link below that to find out more and to back the project.
