Charging Your Phone the Bug Circus Generator Way

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.
