Posh Swiss watch firm Ulysse Nardin (UN) has announced plans to launch a mobile phone that’s able to draw its power from its owner.

Ulysse Nardin's Chairman: powered by kinetic energy

That’s because the Chairman phone has a UN-designed kinetic rotor embedded into its rear that’ll pump power through to a back-up battery each time you move the talker.

Chairman’s been described as a hybrid smartphone, meaning it can also be charged from the mains.

Precious little else is known about the phone yet, but it’s rumoured that only 1846 of the “limited edition” hand-built gold talkers will ever be made. Each will be supplied unlocked, naturally.

A launch date or price hasn’t been discovered yet, but Ulysse Nardin’s expected to unveil the no-doubt expensive phone at a jewellery and watch fair being held in Switzerland later this month. ®
