‘WankBand’ is a wearable kinetic charger that generates power as you jerk it

Apparently Pornhub has plans to get into the wearables game. We’re not entirely sure if this is a joke or not, but earlier today the company unveiled a new wearable kinetic charger on its website. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you: the Wankband.

We’re not going to beat around the bush here — it’s basically a high-tech wristband that generates power while you choke the proverbial chicken. Much like one of those shake-to-shine flashlights, it translates your forearm’s feverish up-and-down motion into usable electricity.

Pornhub doesn’t offer up much technical detail about the device, but assuming that Wankband functions on the same principles as other kinetic chargers, here’s how it works:

Under the hood, Wankband houses a number of magnets. As they jostle around from your snake charming routine, these magnets infuse a surrounding wire coil with energy, which is then stored in a small on-board battery. Once it’s there, all you’ve got to do is plug in your device to transfer power.

No word yet on when Wankband might be released, but we certainly hope that its coming soon (wink). In the meantime, you can sign up to be a “Be(a)ta” tester on the company’s website — and don’t worry, they made a SFW product page for it.
