The Wankband … love the planet by loving yourself.

“The power is in your hand.”

That’s the mantra from adult video website Pornhub which has tapped into one of the world’s great unused reservoirs of energy – the wrists of internet masturbators.

The site has unveiled The Wankband, wearable technology that purportedly generates energy when you, for whatever reason, move your arm in an up-and-down motion.

The wrist-mounted gadget contains a kinetic charger that can be used to power up gadgets such as iPhones.

“Every day, millions of hours of adult content are consumed online, wasting energy in the process and hurting the environment,” the product description reads.

“At Pornhub we decided to do something about it. Introducing The Wankband: The first wearable tech that allows you to love the planet by loving yourself.”

Officials say the device will adapt “naturally to your routine, working during your most relaxed and self-gratifying moment of the day”, and give users a way to “love the planet by loving themselves”.

While the device is targeted primarily toward men, it’s “100 percent unisex” and works just as well for women, too.

“Turn your jobless roommate into a productive person,” the site suggests. “And now, when your partner catches you in the act, you can simply say that you’re trying to save on the electric bill.

“The possibilities are endless.”

The device is still in the developmental stage but interested users can sign up for beta testing on a SFW landing page on the Pornhub website.
