Comments Off on Sollys is an all-in-one solar lamp with speaker and smartphone charging pad

Alexander Main has released a design for what he describes “as a new innovative approach of solar technology integration in home devices.” Solar power has long been referred to as the future source of sustainable energy, but its slow mass adoption has been caused not only due to its higher cost and its poor aesthetics. Sollys lamp takes a different approach. Alexander explains: “I wanted to meld the solar cell with the lamp’s design in such a way that it becomes invisible.” To achieve this look, a single, fully round/black solar cell was used, creating a unified structure. Additionally, Sollys features remarkable added functionalities including a 10-watt Bluetooth speaker, a dimmable 256-color LED light, a hidden wireless charging pad for smartphones, a light/sound alarm function, a leather strap for easy carrying and a removable 4×3.7 volt battery pack. + Sollys on Behance The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
