Here Comes the Sun …

Went shopping last weekend at Shinjuku and saw this solar powered backpack and laptop bag in one of the displays at Tokyu Hands (a popular department store chain in Japan).  Isn’t this cool or what?

In related news, the first solar powered cellular phone made by Sharp became available in Japan earlier this summer.  It is also waterproof and not available in the US.  The picture below and review from Fast Company.

  1. There are some smart people in Africa who are also experimenting with solar power on knapsacks. It’s a great idea. I fact, they could also put them on the roofs of cars or vans, too!

    • Thanks for commenting. I didn’t inspect it closely, but yes, I believe there is a power plug or jack to plug a laptop or any other electronic device needing some power.
