This is a really cool project, I really love it! This video, Bug Circus, was created to promote the energy efficiency of the new S4 Snapdragon chipsets, the clip features a variety of bugs from beetles to scorpions powering intricate circus-themed generators—unicycles, carousels, rolling globes, and the dreaded Wheel of Death. Each generator was then fixed to a capacitor, which funneled energy into the smartphone’s battery. The circus builds towards a death defying stunt performed by a daring Death-Feigning Beetle.
