I find most of these inventions to be useless money pits, and they all seem to be easier to hack then the current systems. The only interesting device would be using body motion to power devices.

[citation][nom]buzznut[/nom]no duh, they already do. I predict some day all devices will be controlled by the individual's mind-and wirelessly for elective surgery implants. Now that's a prediction![/citation]

What about harnessing sound energy (vibration) and EMF energy?

I don't think i will ever trust a computing device to just know what I want and to buy it for me automatically. I hope no one gets to that point, allowing such a thing would just make that person an idiot.

Heck my grandpa had watch powered by movement. It is absolutely just question of efficiency of such mechanisms for converting mechanical into electrical power. Or in other words it's just gear ratio that need to be appropriate.
