LG unveils GD510 with optional Solar Panel coverLG has unveiled the LG GD510, a nice loking and compact 3-inch full touchscreen phone with WQVGA display resolution (240 x 400), 8GB internal memory and a 3 megapixel camera. The LG GD510 is made from brushed aluminum and features a single button on the bottom of the face that functions as the menu, end and cancel keys, depending on what mode the phone is in.

The focus is on an optimized feature set for a more compact phone that’s easier to use. Apparently the GD510 has an optional solar panel add-on, which replaces the battery cover with a solar panel for recharging.

Solar powered Surge iPod Touch RechargerSolar power has come a long way. They used to be something you only saw on hippie communes and Sci-fi movies. Solar panels are on everything now, especially our charging gadgets. The latest to sport a solar panel is the Surge iPod Touch charger, which allows you to recharge your iPod Touch anywhere, as long as you have sunlight.

The case features a 3.7 V lithium-ion battery that can be charged via the sun or by USB should it be cloudy. It comes in a bunch of colors. We aren’t sure if they have chargers for the other iPods, but at least your Touch is covered.

Safaricom launches solar-powered mobile phone Safaricom out of Kenya has rolled out its latest solar-powered cellphone dubbed the Simu ya Solar. The handset was constructed using recycled materials, while an integrated solar panel makes sure that your phone always have some spare juice.

This one is great for users who are in rural areas where electricity is hard to find and sunlight is plentiful. Another benefit for those users is that even if they do have access to electricity, they will save money by letting the sun do it’s thing rather than charging it and wasting resources.

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2009

DoCoMo SH-08A Solar Hybrid PhoneDoCoMo is working on the Solar Hybrid phone, a “solar-powered” phone that is also rugged enough to be “waterproof”, according to DoCoMo. It comes with an 8 Megapixel camera too, so this one is made for outdoor shooting.

It’s not entirely “solar-powered” as it can’t run on solar power alone. It’s more of a “solar assisted” device. 10 minutes in direct sunlight will give you a whopping 1 minute of talk time. Oh and “waterproof” means that the phone can stay in water for 30mn and no deeper than 1 meter.

Neoluxiim shows off solar-powered e ink display

Posted in Solar Powered by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2009

Solar powered e-ink displays are finally here. Neoluxiim recently showed them off for use in point-of-sale advertising. So all of your future e-ink ads will be in color for a more rich impulse purchase to be made by you.

While all ads are annoying, it’s nice to know that those energy-wasting flatscreen kiosks are on the way out. In the future you’ll still be annoyed by the ads, but you can at least rest assured that they will be greener.

USB Solar Charging 4-Port HubHere’s a unique 4-port USB hub with the ability to juice up almost any compatible USB device. It even comes with a whole bunch of USB connectors to handle virtually anything you throw at it. Having a solar powered USB hub is awesome because you won’t add a single cent to your power bill thanks to that solar panel in the middle.

On cloudy days you can always hook it up to your car’s cigarette lighter outlet as an alternative power source. Only $20 and it’s a useful device. It’s like the K3 generator, without a windmill.

Samsung Crest E1107 Solar Cellphone only $59

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2009

Samsung Crest E1107 Solar Cellphone only $59Samsung has announced it’s first solar powered GSM cellphone, the Crest E1107. It’s for eco-friendly, budget conscious types who want to harness the power of the sun. Supposedly, the Crest can generate enough power for 5-10 minutes of talk time with one hour of sun exposure.

I don’t know about you, but I associate the name Crest with toothpaste, so I’m a tad disappointed that this thing can’t power your spin-brush too. It has some basic additional features like an FM radio, MP3 ringers, fake call feature to avoid unwanted calls. Even a flashlight. Yet nothing to brush your teeth.

Philadelphia rolls out solar-powered trash compactors

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on May 31st, 2009

Philadelphia rolls out solar-powered trash compactorsThere’s a new trash can in Philadelphia. Several in fact. These brand new solar trash cans are being installed on philly sidewalks and are entirely powered by the sun. The city hopes that you will use them. They can accept close to eight times as much waste as a regular trash can. They go by the name of Big Bellys and they will save the city close to 12 million dollars over 10 years!

The first Big Belly was recently inaugurated by the Mayor at 15th Street and JFK boulevard at JFK Plaza. Over 500 of the units will be installed by July. 210 of those will also feature an additional recycling bin component. Since the compacting bins only have to be emptied 5 times per week (Regular bins which must be emptied 19 times), the city will see huge savings on staff time, fuel costs, and greenhouse gas emissions.

6 In 1 solar robot kit

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on May 28th, 2009

6 In 1 solar robot kitThis 6 in 1 solar kit can be built into a dog, boat, car, plane (static and moving), and even a windmill. Looks like a great way to learn a bit about robotics and solar energy. Only £13.00, which is odd because I don’t think they get much sun in the UK, so not very much play time with this thing.

Still, rain or shine, you get a bunch of variety in one kit. Six robots are better than one. Buy a few kits and soon you’ll have a solar robot army.


Q-Sound Solar Bluetooth headphones are from the future

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 21st, 2009

Q-Sound Solar Bluetooth headphones are from the futureThis pair of headphones is clearly from the future. No doubt sent here to protect young John Connor’s ears and keep him listening to his tunes in style, so that he can one day be a kick-ass leader. At least, that’s what I’m guessing judging by how awesome they look. This is the Q-Sound headphone concept from Shepeleff Stephen and the design is simply amazing.

It looks great and also uses solar technology. That’s a solar panel running across the headband, where it will always catch the sun. The Q-Sound, being a concept, would also take calls or plug into a 3.5mm jack if you need it to.

Solar-powered gadgets are nothing new. But a solar powered home theater system? It’s appropriately named the “Guiltless Green Home Theater” and was manufactured from scratch by Home Theater Specialists of America (HTSA). It’s the first of its kind and has some surprising specs.

For one thing it will give you up to 19 hours of video and audio playback even if the sun isn’t shining that day. They didn’t sacrifice quality either, with a Sharp projector, a 100″ Stewart Filmscreen, six SpeakerCraft in-wall speakers, an Integra AV receiver, Monster Cable wiring, Lutron lighting, and Universal Remote Control.
