Tilting Solar Panel for Your USB Gadgets

In a concept design only, Eric Strebel and Jim Nogarian prototyped a solar panel which can rotate with the sun.  The case has three angles on the bottom, a flat surface for sunlight directly above around noon time, and two 45 degree angle for morning and afternoon sun.  It’s a good idea…I think.

After a little bit of research it appears the direct sunlight approach to solar is a thing of the past.  New technology allows diffused light to generate electricity through the solar panels and thus maximizes any solar panel even slightly exposed to sunlight. Putting this information aside, The Solcar Vox does look like a fresh idea on charging your USB gadgets or other devices which charge via USB like the iPhone. If you like the idea you can pre-order the prototype which is really just a vote you favor the design and wish for it to be produced.  Ordering/voting ends Jan 28th 2011.  Visit KickStarter for more details Source:  MobielMag [https://tinyurl.com/29x2a8o]
