"My Battery's Dead - I'll Ring You Back Once The Cloud Breaks"

22 December 2008

If you were mindstaggered by Paul’s post from last week that showed how a nightclub could be powered just by dancing, say hello to the next cool source of energy – the solar-powered sunglasses.

It’s one of those ‘surely someone’s already done that?’ ideas, but apparently not. Until designers Hyun-Joong Jim and Kwang-Seok Jeong got on the scene that is. They’re claiming that the sun’s rays can be converted into enough energy to recharge an mp3 player or mobile phone.

We’re not completely sure about the look of the actual shades – if they can custom-build us a pair like Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera used to wear circa 1973 (right) then we’ll have some.
