Eco Factor: Solar-powered portable electronics charger.
With the number of portable electronic devices an average human owns on a rise, inventors are looking for green ways to charge these devices. Solar energy seems the most promising way to charge our electronic gear and there has been no shortage of solar-powered gadgets on the market. Industrial designer Fandi Meng has designed the “Sunny Flower,” which promises to offer your gadgets a green charge every time.
The device works by spreading its petals onto glass or any other surface to absorb sunshine and recharge its built-in battery. When the device is fully charged its indicator light will shine to catch your attention. After a complete charge the petals of the flower can be brought together into a compact stick which can then charge various mobile devices.
