Gallery: Top tech for festival season
It's a long way from Woodstock but for the Glastonbury festival this weekend, Tim Ferguson of silicon.com has brought together the most interesting tech O2 and Orange have come up with to improve the experience.
This is Orange's Recharge Pod which is being used at Glastonbury. It uses solar and wind power to charge up festival goers' mobile phones. It can charge up to 100 phones at a time.
Here's what is inside the tent.
Gig goers at the O2 Wireless Festival in London's Hyde Park will be able to use three of these bikes to charge their phones themselves.
They can contact friends to tell them where they are and how long they plan to be there and use it to find their way back to their tent in the dark.
The system also allows people to create a planner for the festival weekend, meaning they know when their favorite bands are on and how to find the right stages.
The 'VIPee' NFC toilets will be available to 100 existing O2 NFC trial participants along with 200 customers (plus guests) per day. The wristbands will be given out at random by O2 Angels.
With the help of renewable energy specialist GotWind--also responsible for the Orange Recharge Pod--users can strap the device to their arm and charge their phone using kinetic energy created as they throw shapes into the wee hours.
