I am far form a green person, I have a computer that eats more power than two or three other machines might thanks to the hardware inside. I also have an obscene amount of vampire power thanks to my low-tech power strips. Eton has a new green gadget for generating power that I would like to get my hands on though.
The device is called the Scorpion and it has two ways to generate power for all manner of electronic devices that charge from USB. The thing has a crank to generate power and a solar panel.
Other than the charging capability, the Scorpion also has a flashlight, AM/FM radio, Weather band tuner, and the entire rig is splash proof for ruggedness. This might be the perfect way to keep your iPod charged on camping trips this summer. The Scorpion is available now for $50.
