Created by a team comprised of designers from the UK and Bulgaria, Solarella , a solar-powered umbrella (hence the name) is equipped with solar modules and a rechargeable battery that can be used to charge everything from phones and mp3 players to tablets, laptops, and cameras while you relax outside. Instead of having to relegate yourself to areas that have dedicated electrical plugs, you can take Solarella with you, anywhere you’d like to be. You can even stream music through its Bluetooth speaker! No wires required. The Solar Umbrella campaign is now live on Indiegogo ,  so be sure to get yours before they sell out. + Solarella on Indiegogo Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
