    Solar Panel Sunglasses Will Soon Charge Your Mobile Phones

     

    It all started when an India born US based designer Sayalee Kaluskar took a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses and placed small solar panels on each side of the frame. Kaluskar worked with San Franciso-based copywriter Ramiro Ramirez on the project as part of their student work at Miami Ad School in San Francisco.

    The panels that were placed in the two arms would allow the sunglasses to harness solar energy during the day. And when the sun goes down the frames can be detached and used to charge an iPhone anytime. In fact, this could be the first portable solar energy tapping mechanism so far.

    While talking about other similar devices, there are solar panels on wearable gear like Ralph Lauren backpacks as well.

    Take a look at the concept video of the sunglasses below:
