Eco-friendly way to Recharge your Batteries.

Imagine a piece of outdoor furniture where you can seat, lounge and recharge the batteries of your gadgest with clean, free of charge energy. Does that sound like fiction? Yes, that does although, the SOFT Rocker exists and has been developed by architecture students at MIT, lead by professor Sheila Kennedy. The futuristic looking chaise longue uses the human power of balance to create an interactive 35 watt solar tracking system. The equipment also utilizes a 12-ampere-hour battery to store the solar energy and make it possible to recharge batteries after the sunset.

We’re not sure how much it would cost to produce or even buy one of these but don’t look really great in picture? We would really hope to see a few of these on main campus. Let us hear what you think of these on the comments section.

For more details on this project vist the MIT´s webpage about the SOFT Rocker here.
