There is nothing quite like a sunny day, the clouds part and the rays just fill you with joy. And what an enormous power source, beaming down on us every day, so it would make sense to use this free source of power. But if we do use it, does that mean our solar-powered devices have to clunky and ugly. Absolutely not. Just because it’s a green eco-friendly mobile phone doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish. Phone designers are incorporating the concept of being environmentally friendly, so that users can reduce their carbon footprints without too much discomfort, without compromising on style.
That’s what Georgian designer Yana Moskalenko has done with her latest mobile design creation that keeps sustainability at the core of its values and chargers using photovoltaic charging – that’s solar power to you and me.
Yana has designed a concept solar-powered cellphone. Yan’s stylish design on the rear of the mobile has a solar panel in which to trap energy from the sun’s rays to charge it up. The mobile sports the usual body type that we expect for smartphones these days, it comes in two basic color schemes Black and Blue. 114mm x 58.3 x 10.1. Thus, it sports a 200 hour standby time and an hour’s worth of music on tap. Other standard features to keep in the running: it has a touch screen resolution TFT display with 240 x 320 pixels resolution driving a 17 million colors scheme.
