Solar powered Buffalo wireless keyboard
Buffalo introduced their new BSKBW01SB solar powered wireless keyboard. It features a small and adjustable solar panel just above the number pad so you can better capture the sun’s sweet nectar. Maybe there’s only one tiny ray hitting your cubicle, if you get the right angle, you have power baby!

It also runs on batteries just in case you live in Alaska. It’s got 17 hot keys, does it’s thing in the 2.4 Ghz frequency and will give you a range of 10 meters. The keyboard will go on sale in Japan by mid July at a price of $135. You may be saving power, but not money.

Solar-powered Wii station for outdoor play

Solar-powered Wii station for outdoor play
It’s a beautiful summer day. You want nothing more then to play your Wii and enjoy the outdoors. But you can’t do both. Or can you? Now you can, thanks to this solar powered Wii station.

Whether it’s some exercise with Wii fit or a kick-ass round of Mario Kart, you’ll be having fun in the sun. It’s basically little more then a wooden case that houses the Wii, a high definition display, a solar power panel, and a battery, so I’m sure it’s entirely worth the $1,431 build cost.

solarDAB: world’s first solar-powered DAB radio

solarDAB: world’s first solar-powered DAB radio
The solarDAB is what I would call retro-ugly. Meaning that it reminds me of some of the uglier aspects of yesterday’s gadgets…today. Ugly it may be, but it is the world’s first solar-powered DAB radio, from Roberts. It sports a top-mounted solar panel along with an indicator on the display that shows you the strength of the solar level being absorbed.

With the rechargeable batteries fully sun kissed, you’ll have tunes for an amazing 27 hours. Looks like they have a variety of colors to choose from for $158. Ugly, yes. But 27 hours of music is pretty awesome.

Thanko’s solar-powered DAP

Posted in Digital Audio by Conner Flynn on May 31st, 2008

Thanko’s solar-powered DAP
As far as solar devices go, Thanko’s DAP actually looks pretty nice. I’ve seen much worse. In the front it looks like any other device with a 1.8-inch 220 x 176 resolution display, 4GB of internal storage space and a miniSD expansion slot.

But in the back is where you’ll find the solar panel that doubles as a stand for the unit. Just stand the whole thing up as shown and let it soak up the sun. It can also be charged via USB. No word on a price or release date, so who knows if we’ll ever see it in the U.S.

Solar-powered iPhone in our future?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2008

Solar-powered iPhone in our future?
Is Apple getting into solar power? It looks that way. According to Tradethenews.com, the company filed a patent involving placing solar cells on portable devices. This means that Apple’s iPhone or other devices could have photovoltaic cells stacked underneath LCD touch screens, which maximizes the area available for harnessing and soaking up the power of the sun.

According to the filing, performance info in regard to the performance of a device’s solar cells could be displayed on the main screen next to battery power, which makes sense. It could also appear on top of the actual cells, which could be displaying the Apple logo. Imagine less charging of devices. Then one day no charging at all. Nice.

Solar-powered bra with drinkable cups

Solar-powered bra with drinkable cups
Here’s the latest wacky concept from Japan. A solar-powered bra that’s eco-friendly. Forget the fact that it looks like someone glued a display onto a piece of astroturf. The solar panel on the waist powers a scrolling LED display above, so you can display a message, about how dorky you look. It can also power other devices.

Here’s the really strange bit. It has reusable liquid containers in the cups, because they want to discourage the use of aluminum cans. The upshot is that you would increase your bust size…Until you get thirsty.

Veil Solar Shade provides power King Cobra style

Veil Solar Shade provides power King Cobra style
The Veil Shade might one day sit in the schoolyards of some Australian elementary schools, waiting for the right moment to strike little children. Or perhaps waiting for Indiana Jones who hates snakes.

Then again, it might be a completely innocent and unique way of collecting sunlight. It’s a concept from design firm Büro North, and it’s pretty well thought out. It automatically rotates during the day hours, to ensure the “hood” is always pointed at the sun. It also provides a shady spot on the underside of the hood. Also, the kids can actually learn something since markings and LEDs on the base show how much solar power the Veil is collecting.

Lumeta’s “peel & stick” solar panels

Lumeta’s “peel & stick” solar panels
You want some of that sweet solar juice, but you don’t want to tear up your roof just to get solar panels installed. Lumeta’s PowerPly could be the answer. The panels use traditional roofing adhesives, that most roofers will be familiar with, and the process means that there is no need to drill holes and bolts as with most other systems required to mount solar panels. It’s also faster. They can do an entire roof in 35 minutes!

It’s targeted at commercial projects for the moment, but hopefully residential houses will soon be getting the opportunity. Video below.

iPhone Solar Star edition from Goldstriker

iPhone Solar Star edition from Goldstriker
Goldstriker knows a thing or two about making devices more beautiful, the iPhone is no exception and the Solar Star edition is their latest attempt. It features 24 carat gold plating on both the front bezel and Apple’s rear logo, while the rest of the case is the ultra luxurious Balloon White paint found on a Lamborghini Gallardo.

The white-and-gold color scheme is sex to the eye and looks nice to touch. It comes with updated firmware 1.1.4 and is unlocked for worldwide GSM use. You’ll get 16GB of flash memory inside. The $1,477 price tag is not for everyone. Some of us would rather save the money for a 3G iPhone, despite how beautiful this one looks.

Casio gets colorful, solar with G-Shock watches

Posted in Watches by Nino Marchetti on March 11th, 2008

Casio G-Shock G5500CCasio G-Shock watches have now apparently been around for some 25 years. The company has just rolled out another model – the Casio G-Shock G5500C – to join the product line and it prices at around $120.

The Casio G-Shock G5500C is available in three colors – red, green, white – and, like its predecessors, is shock resistant and also water resistant up to 200 meters. This particular G-Shock also draws its power from the sun via a built-in solar panel and rechargeable battery.

Ravi solar charger looks like an alien flower

Posted in Solar Powered by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2008

Ravi solar charger
The Ravi solar charger hopes to steer you toward greener living with it’s attractive flower-like design. The Ravi solar has photovoltaic arrays attached to petal extensions. The flower aspect is not just symbolic, it actually absorbs energy from the sun during the day, storing it in an internal battery. It gets some points for coolness due to the fact that the petals glow once the battery is charged. At night, you would have a kick-ass glowing garden. You would then remove the battery packs to power all of your home appliances.

The idea is that with gardens of Ravi portable solar generators in a neighborhood, enough power could be generated to supply the community, and if that can not be managed, it would at least lessen energy needs. It’s a pretty cool idea, but it has a kind of War Of The World quality that scares me.

Strapya mini solar cell phone charger
Here’s another great gadget for those who are environmentally conscious. The Strapya mini solar cell phone charger is smaller than an iPod, and when it has 6-10 hours of sunlight it becomes a dependable backup power source for your cell phone.

It hooks up to your phone using an adapter and you can get 3 hours of energy. Not only is it useful and environmentally friendly, but the price is not outrageous at about $17.54. So it wont “Strapya” for cash. And hey, sunlight is free.

Solar powered handheld Nintendo emulator

Solar powered handheld Nintendo emulator
Here’s a third-party handheld Nintendo emulator that doesn’t look like total garbage. Though it has the typical generic name of Solar MP4, this little device actually has some impressive features. It can play MP4 videos up to 320×240 in size on its 3.5 inch TFT screen, it also has built-in emulators for NES, GameBoy and GameBoy Color games. Of course you have to use ROMS loaded via an SD card, but those are easy enough to find. It can even function as an e-Book reader with the ability to read out loud any text file as long as it’s written in English or Chinese.

And of course, it has a DS-like design with solar panels, so you can play games using the power of the sun. Not bad for a knock off. You can get one for $123.32.

Solar powered Bible speaks

Solar powered Bible speaks

No, you won’t hear the biblical voice of NRA spokesman Chuck Heston or Ned Flanders for that matter, but this solar powered Bible will read the entire bible to you. In a human voice no less. If God had waited a few centuries to give Moses the 10 commandments, instead of stone tablets, they would have looked like this device. But I digress.

You can jump from book to book, or chapter to chapter just by pressing a button. You will never be without the good book again. It gives you 10 hours of preachiness when fully charged and recharges via the sun, a lamp, or a 9 volt DC adapter. It’s only 4 1/2″ x 2″ x 1″ thick. I don’t know if it will get you into heaven, but let’s face it, it can’t hurt. We all have to score points with the big guy.

Solar-powered Aleutia E1 computer

Solar-powered Aleutia E1 computer

The Aleutia E1 is a sturdy environmentally friendly computer built for anyone who wants or needs to live off the grid. Perfect for aid workers in third world countries, or just some guy living in a remote shack. Even with a 10″ display, it only uses 18 watts power. That’s about a quarter of the power used by a typical laptop. It’s not just an energy saver. It’s also built to be tough, with no moving parts and an aluminum case, so it can survive being dropped.

Looking a bit like an old stereo, the Aleutia uses a built-in solar panel to get the juice it needs. Off the grid means no plugging anything in anywhere. It runs Puppy Linux as an OS, and can handle office, web, and multimedia applications. Of course you can do things like listen to mp3′s and make pdf documents, but you can also play Tetris and Risk, which will help kill the boredom of being off the grid.
