Sponsored Video: Using Bugs To Power Smartphones


A bewildering headline we know, but Qualcomm managed it. Qualcomm have created a new video, posing the question, ‘how many praying mantises does it take to power a smartphone’ – well you may be surprised. Take a look at the video below to find out…





Qualcomm created the set and shot this video themselves to promote their new SnapDragon S4 processors, they are built using a much smaller transistor process with tons of power optimization features. Looks a very green way to power your device, but might be a bit tricky to set it up everywhere you go 😉




Qualcomm have produced a second video too, this time demonstrating how a Qualcomm Snapdragon-enabled smartphone travels around the world recording videos on one battery charge. It’s true this phone was taken from LA to New York, London, Paris, Shanghai, Moscow, Dubai and Rio De Janeiro. During traveling the smartphone was turned off in order to record video shots at the various destinations. The images in the video above are the raw shots without the use of any post-production effects.
