Tag Heuer Meridiist Infinite With Perpetual Power Reserve
THAT time finally came! You know, the time when your smartphone runs by itself without needing an external charging power source.
Developed by the Swiss watch manufacturer TAG Heuer, the Meridiist Infinite is the first phone around with perpetual power reserve – it charges its own battery while in standby mode! And no, it doesn’t have a little running hamster inside!

TAG Heuer partnered with Sunpartner Technologies and, by introducing an invisible photovoltaic component in the phone’s sapphire crystal screen, developed the Wysips Crystal technology which charges the phone under specific natural or artificial light. There’s no mention about the price (but hey, it’s a TAG Heuer phone, don’t expect Samsung And Apple pricing!!!) but we know that the device will be manufactured as a limited edition with only 1911 pieces and will be made using high quality materials such as titanium, carbon fiber, and fancy rubber.

While the Vertu-look-alike phone itself does not present much interest for the regular consumer due to it’s high price point, it’s interesting to see how the perpetual power reserve technology included in it will affect smartphone development in the future.
