Answer: The engineers have shown phones can be recharged by yelling at them. According to PCWorld, researchers have developed "a new way to top up your phone's battery: by shouting at it. This comes via a technique that turns energy from sound into electricity, and would allow a phone to be charged while you hold a conversation."
