Shake Your Booty, Use Your Phone

My once-classmate and friend Laura sent me a link to this article about powering cellphones by dancing. The prototype chargers powered by this kind of kinetic energy don't weigh any more than a regular cellphone, and they attach to your arm with magnets & weights.

So, here's what I'm wondering: would people actually use this? I mean, I would, but I freaking love dancing (I would have its babies if I could). I'm thinking it might have some mass appeal in kind of the way the Wii does.

Would you dance around like a loon for some free energy?
