The US Air Force is working to develop the coolest charger on the planet. The Remote Auxiliary Power System (via Gearlog) is a bat-hook like device that clips onto a power line and leeches juice, turning itself into a live outlet. Few details are out now, but the Air Force has confirmed that this thing will be rain safe.
That's especially impressive when you consider the fact that this Bat-siphon actually slices the power line just a little bit in order to make its connection. That right there is enough to ensure this thing will never be widely available on the civilian market.
Crooked Air Force scientists are more than welcome to send me one, though. Please?

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
