How about this for an all-purpose gadget? Cheng Peng has designed a portable wind turbine with solar panels [1] on its blades. The device is capable of generating enough energy to power your cell phone [2] or GPS, or it can power its own built-in LED light. It’s called Mobile Energy, and it measures just half a meter long when folded down, making it portable enough to carry with you on backpacking or cycling trips.

If the turbine’s base is really stable enough to hold this thing up when the wind is blowing, who could argue with the genius of this creation? You could take it with you everywhere and never plug in a charger [4] again. And, let’s face it, you’d always have the coolest campsite around.
