iFan case for iPhone really blows (in a good way)

One of the unfortunate byproducts of our addiction to gadgetry is that it may not always be so good for the environment. In order to treat mother nature a little better, Tjeerd Veenhoven fashioned together a special iPhone case that he dubs the iFan. Yeah, it’s a case with a giant fan at the top of it.

The idea with the repurposed computer cooling fan is that it can act much like a windmill, taking the power of passing gusts and harnessing it into useful electricity. This can then recharge your iPhone on the go without ever needing to plug into a wall outlet. I can’t imagine it being all that efficient, but every little bit helps.

Is it unsightly? Possibly. Will you have a very hard shoehorning this thing into your jeans pocket? Without a doubt. Even so, I could see this being an effective solution for someone going for a bike ride, mounting the phone with the iFan case to the handlebars. This way, you can use your iPhone as a GPS navigator (or music player or whatever) and keep the battery charged with the wind passing you by.
