Friday Funny 301: Wear This While Running

>> Friday, March 30, 2012

File under "W" for "WWHHHAAAAAAAAA?!?!?!?!?!

(From Dailymail)

Soon going for a run won't just help your fitness levels, it’ll give your phone a boost too thanks to an ingenious new inventionthat uses the air from your lungs to charge it.

The clever piece of kit, dubbed the AIRE mask, harnesses the wind power created by breathing and converts it into electricity to run anything from your iPod to your mobile.

The electronic mask contains tiny wind turbines and the energy created is transferred through a cable to your electronic device. [....]

So.... just a few comments:

#1: I'm for "going green" and all, but there's a line. I don't know that I want to look a little like the Predator while going green.

#2: Wouldn't that chafe the hell out of your face while you were running?

#3:The device is sooooo poorly Photoshopped on those models. (It's OK on the guy, but pretty bad on the woman.) Come on, people at AIRE.

#4: Keds?!? Do you remember Keds? Is she running in Keds? WTF?!?

What else? What am I missing? Add your commentary in the comments below...

The woman has the power cord to the iphone, but no earbuds? So, she is purely running just to charge her phone?

I thought it was a running SARS mask. No?
