SOFT Rocker: Um Jeito Estiloso e Ecologicamente Correto de Recarregar as Baterias / SOFT Rocker: A Stylish and Eco-friendly Way to Recharge Your Batteries.

Imagine uma peça de mobiliário externo em que se possa sentar, descançar e além disso recarregar os seus gadgets com energia limpa e gratuita. Parece ficção? Sim, parece mas, a SOFT Rocker já existe e foi desenvolvida por estudantes de arquitetura do MIT, orientados pela professora Sheila Kennedy. A chaise longue de visual futurista utiliza a força humana de equilíbrio para criar um sistema interativo de rastreamento de energia solar de 35 watts.  O sistema também usa uma bateria de 12 amperes-hora para armazenar a energia solar e possibilitar o seu uso após o pôr do sol. Vamos comentar no blog!

  1. This is a very interesting concept. It looks great in pictures and would really hope to see these in future on our beautiful green campus here at University of Nottingham, UK!

    Would these prototype become available to the mass consumer? I would hope at least if they became available through schools and education to start gain exposure so that they don’t end being priced too high and becoming a luxury rather than an amenity. What do you think?

    Also a story of this will be included on our blog soon!
