Solar-Powered Lounge Chairs: You Chill While Your Gadgets Recharge

Chilling in the yard while your gadgets are recharging sounds like a good way to spend the summer. That’s why I like these new chairs called SOFT Rockers. They have a 35-watt solar panel that charges a built-in battery which will juice up your gadgets.

You can access the power via the built-in USB ports. The power can be used to light-up the inside of the chair, to give you light while you are reading or browsing when the sun goes down. Created by architecture professor Sheila Kennedy and a team of students at MIT, the SOFT Rocker can also capture the kinetic energy from your rocking motions, to add even more power to the chair.

The SOFT Rockers can be found at Killian Court, at MIT until the end of the week if you want to try them out.
