[QUOTE=olyteddy;2500181]That’s news? There have been self-winding watches for a real long time. Hardly worth a patent…[/QUOTE]
A real long time? Wow, that long? LOL.
Self-winding pocket watches have been around for 240 years.
Self-winding wrist watches have been around for 87 years.
[QUOTE=Blu-rayFreak;2500276]I think it’s pretty cool new tech that has potential. Obviously a self-charging smartphone battery is going to be highly different than a watch battery.[/QUOTE]
Yes, they’re different. But let’s give credit where it’s due. Self-winding wristwatches 87 years ago was as big a deal as a self-charging battery is today. Cutting-edge tech is cool in any century.
