Al Gore’s eBook Is ‘Breath Powered’

A breath powered app? That is the gimmick in a new app from former Vice President Al Gore that was demonstrated at the TED Conference in Long Beach, CA yesterday.

Push Pop Press founder/ex-Apple designer Mike Matas demoed the Our Choice app, a follow up to Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth at the event. The app is a co-production from Push Pop Press and publisher Melcher Media.

Fast Company reports: “Matas stopped the show when he gently blew on the tablet’s mic, and on its screen, the blades of a wind turbine turned, with electricity moving to a house and then into a storage battery. Stop blowing, the blades slow down, and the flow of power reverses. This works on the iPhone too.”
