Intel Hopes to Bring Free Energy to Mobile Devices

Now wireless Computing takes it a step further, just think you would not have to plug in your cell phone every night to ensure you don't miss that important call in the morning. Wonder how long it will be for the mini Laptop's will have this?
Intel on Friday said it is researching technology to harvest free energy from the environment, which could lead to devices such as mobile phones running for indefinite periods without recharging.
"It wouldn't have any batteries, you wouldn't have to come out and service them, and you don't have to run any power. They are completely self-contained, and most importantly, self-powered as a result of scavenging energy from the environment," Rattner said.
But then again, How long have we had watches, and calculators that could do this? Need to get the solar cells up to snuff so they can gather more electricity.
