Posted in Solar Powered by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2009

Solar panels hang out your windowWe could probably all stand to get a little greener in our everyday lives. Portable and compact solar panels like these make it pretty easy, since large panels are expensive and not suited for the home. These are especially great for apartment dwellers looking to get greener.

Veranda Solar is working on these solar panels that would sunbath outside of apartment windows, gathering rays that will power your stuff inside. No word yet on how much power you can expect to get from them, but the price is estimated to be from $400 to $600.

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 12th, 2009

Solar Driveway MarkersSometimes you can’t see where you are going, while driving. This might be due to alcohol, snow or even fog. Most likely alcohol. These Solar Driveway Markers sure would come in handy so you don’t end up parking in your living room.

They’re 1 meter tall, stick into the ground and are recharged by the sun so that they may blink red for 8 hours. That way when you come home you’ll know where or where not to park. Buy a whole bunch and put on a light show, or use it to actually confuse people, then sit back and watch the comedy.

Make your own solar rechargeable batteriesWant some batteries that you can put out in the sun and power up? Knut Karlsen constructed his very own solar rechargeable batteries that soak up the sun’s rays and convert them into power. If you want to try your hand at making some, he has documented the DIY project to create the prototype SunCat battery. If you can get your hands on some flexible solar cells.

Knut has some connections at the Institute for Energy Technology, so it wasn’t a problem for him. Basically Knut attached the solar cells to old rechargeable NiMH batteries and used contacts from an old camera to connect the negative pole to the photo voltaic cells. And just like that you have batteries that can sit out in the sun and store up energy.

Posted in Chargers by Shane McGlaun on November 20th, 2008

Solar Powered Camel delivers vaccines

Solar Powered Camel delivers vaccinesIn the future all beasts of burden will have solar powered backs so that they can better serve man. Look how well it’s working out for the camel. The solar cells power a small refrigerator, which allows them to deliver heat-sensitive vaccines to remote health centers in Africa.

It’s an ingenious solution to getting them from point A to point B intact. When refrigeration isn’t needed, the solar system even provides lighting at the clinic. It’s win/win. Despite being in the desert, the sun doesn’t always shine and for those times they have a foot-powered generator.


Solar powered UFO caught by police

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on September 11th, 2008

Solar powered UFO caught by policeMarcelo da Luz is not an alien. He has never probed another living thing. In fact he loves his home planet so much that for the past two years he has been driving his solar powered car across the country. But when he reached the Sarah Palin/alien fearing state of Alaska earlier in the week, his UFO car was spotted by a concerned citizen who called 911 to report a UFO sighting. Nevermind that UFO’s reside in the sky and this was on the road.

Alaskan police are not the sort to let aliens roam their highways so they went into action, probably hearing 70′s theme music in their heads, and pulled over Marcelo for interrogation. Once they realized that it was yet another human on the open road, they let bygones be bygones and let him go. Marcelo has has been pulled over at least seven times thanks to his odd vehicle.

Solar powered necktie combines business with geek

Solar powered necktie combines business with geek
We’ve seen our share of solar powered devices, but nothing so hideous and blatantly dorky as the solar powered necktie. It will not only collect solar power, but it also singles you out as a geek. You can thank a group of braniacs at Iowa State University for creating it. It’s made from newly developed solar fabrics. The solar panels are tiny and laid out in a grid that at least makes it look somewhat like any other tacky tie.

It even sports a pocket sewn into the back so your device can suck precious juice like a parasite that no one can see. This technology can only end with a living symbiote tie that strangles you dead, thereby making it look like you’ve committed suicide. Then they’ll take over the world. No one will know. It will just seem like unusually high suicides. Let’s just stop wearing them now, can we? They’re silly.

GreenCore 10200: Air Conditioning from solar power

Posted in Solar Powered by Conner Flynn on August 14th, 2008

GreenCore 10200: Air Conditioning from solar powerAir conditioners are not usually solar powered because they use so much power you would need a large surface area of solar panels to keep it going. What’s interesting here is that the GreenCore 10200 solves this problem by using a battery pack that it recharges continuously throughout the day. (It can also be charged directly from the wall)

The GreenCore comes with a configuration that will not be enough power to run the air conditioner completely on it’s own, but what it will do is save you some serious money on your next power bill by doing it’s part and it can be combined with other solar panels to supply its complete power needs. The technology looks pretty promising and can be used in a variety of ways.
