Diffus Solar-Powered Handbag: Green is In

We’ve featured a backpack with solar panels for charging gadgets, perfect for people on the go and those who enjoy the outdoors. This handbag from Danish design company Diffus is perfect for everyday use. It may not be much at first glance, until you realize that it not only does it have solar panels, the panels are the centerpiece of the bag’s design, yet the bag doesn’t look like a science experiment or a prototype.

The 100 solar panels wired to the exterior of the handbag generate about 2 watts of power; not enough to charge tablets or smartphones, but Diffus is optimistic that they’ll be able to double or triple that in the near future as solar technology improves. One other neat touch that the handbag has is that it has fiber optic cables inside that light up when the bag is opened, providing illumination.

The handbag is expected to go on sale soon, although I don’t know for how much. It’s probably going to be expensive, but that’s always the case with groundbreaking products. The important thing is for designs like this to flourish to help make green products an everyday presence, not just limited to concepts or used in special conditions.
