Fora: A solar powered music player integrated with a LED lamp
At the first instance it may seem to have ademeanor of an Apple product, but in reality this is a conception that scores high on the practical side of affairs. Dubbed as the Fora, this uniquely contrived device designed by the team of Benson Lee and Roy Chen is actually a clean solar powered music player, which doubles up as a LED desk lamp.
Supposedly inspired by the natural process of photosynthesis, the designers wanted to conceive a totally “green” system with dual advantages. Firstly the adroit conception would utilize emission free solar energy, and then rather notching up a sustainable level, the device is also touted to be energy efficient. Thus the consumption of electricity from conventional sources is significantly reduced.
Moreover, coming to the practical side, the nigh effortless, modular design (and hence my allusion to Apple) along with complete cordless features facilitates portability. The designers have also thought of a completely patented photo sensor that regulates the optimum usage and intensity of solar induction. This in turn accentuates upon the level of efficiency and makes this elegantly green product applicable in various scenarios.
