Kickstarter: GO KIN Packs

We wrote back in November about Bill Ostrom of Ostrom Outdoors who worked with students at Queens University to create a backpack that will charge your digital devices. Well the GO KIN Pack is now on Kickstarter and you can help bring it to market.

"The GO KIN is simple and easy to use. The device fits into our backpack or fanny pack and two cords extend from the bottom of the pack and attach to your ankles (either clipping onto the tabs on your running shoes, or using our ankle straps). To generate power, you simply need to go for a walk!"

There are two USB ports to charge your devices and a Lithium-Ion battery to store energy for later usage. The goal is $30,000, the campaign closes July 17th and they hope to ship it this November (2014).
