Yo-Yo iPod Charger


Always forgetting to charge your iPod/iPhone, leaving you without music and phone service? Can’t get to an outlet? No sun where you live? Well, then there’s still a way for you get a charge: the iYo.

Yes, this is actually a concept for a yo-yo that will power your iGadget, designed by Swedish industrial designer Peter Thuvander. If these things actually get manufactured, they might bring back the yo-yo for reals. I’d buy one…


As you can imagine from its name, the iYo is a yoyo-powered induction charger for your iPhone. This concept was created by Thuvander since Sweden is dark six months out of a year, so solar chargers don’t really work well. The iYo creates a charge by moving up and down on its string, just like a yo-yo. This is the first yo-yo-based charging system that we’ve ever seen.
