In this commercial by Qualcomm for their Snapdragon processor, bugs are used to generate electrical power on miniature circus equipment in order to charge a mobile phone. The idea is that this new processor requires so little power to function, you could literally just use the power harnessed from a scorpion on a miniature treadmill tethered to a miniature generator to charge it. I can't believe I just wrote that sentence.
