Little Sun Charge Solar Phone Charger And Light [Video]
Olafur Eliasson returns to Kickstarter again following the success of his solar powered light. This time around, he has a loftier goal in mind, a solar powered phone charger that includes a light.
The premise of the project is "We are all connected by the sun".
Eliasson explains, "Our actions have consequences for the world. Little Sun is a wedge that opens up the urgent discussion about bringing sustainable energy to all from the perspective of art to raise awareness about energy access and the unequal distribution of energy today."
- Fully charges a smartphone in 5 hours of sunshine.
- Uses your existing cables through a standard USB port.
- Hang it on your backpack and charge on the go.
- Portable power and light.
The Little Sun Charge has already been prototyped and tested and is moving into production at the end of the Kickstarter campaign.
With a goal of €50,000 (~$56,000 USD), this fundraiser was at €211,854 (~$235,500 USD) at the time of publishing, with 12 days to go.
Backers of this project receive thanks ranging from the undying love of their parrot to being appointed a solar ambassador.
