This wearable charging device for gadgets is brilliant - it's called the WANK BAND

    This is a bracelet that generates power through movement - it stores that power which can then be used to charge gadgets up.

    And it's called the WankBand!



    It's a Pornhub idea and I bet they sell loads of them.

    And if anyone wants to take advantage of the undoubted media coverage this is going to get

    Wankband.net is available

    In fact, the only one not available is the .com

    I was going to grab it myself but we're so stacked with projects it'd just go to waste - so I thought I'd throw the idea out there instead :)

    Someone should go for it!

    Haha yeah I saw that pop up on Facebook earlier today. I'm still not sure what to make of it... is it just a publicity stunt or are they serious? Whatever the case is, I loved their video. Was definitely a welcome break from work (my boss appreciated it too)!

    Love the "be(a)ta" bit on their site too! :D

    I think its legit but also some what of a PR stunt, there are other wrist worn kinetic chargers that you can wear such as watches. This device just has a larger kinetic charger in it.

    Pornhub's marketing team could teach us all a thing or two!

    Well we'll see I guess! I can definitely see myself getting one for my friend just as a joke :)

    Whether or not it's legit, a big thumbs up for me! :biglaugh:
