I never remember to charge my phone. So much so that a friend bought me a car charger for my birthday in the hopes that it'd help me have more power. I tried making it my new year's resolution this year, too. Both failed. However, a new prototype product could be just what I need! While currently the electricity-generating leash only causes light illumination as the flexi style goes in and out, I'm inclined to agree with the Wired editors that a USB port would push its utility over the edge to a must-have item for my oft-drained iPhone while looking for the closest dog park or entertaining my pooch with a faux squeaky. What's your take?
