Smart phone powered by offset weight

Ulysse Nardin Chairman hybrid smart phone

Remember the old mechanical watches that used to wind up by wrist motion?  They utilized an offset weight that spun around inside the watch and slowly but surely kept the watch wound up.  Well here’s a cell hone that does the same thing.  I’m sure it’s expensive.

What other items could we power this way?
