The sun lounger you'll never want to leave

Comments (0)

solar sun lounger.jpgIt seems an obvious idea, doesn't it? By their very nature, sun loungers spend an awful lot of time soaking up rays, so why not turn that energy into something more than just a whole lot of sunburn for you?

The 'tech chair' does just that. A panel-laden shade above the user's head collects solar energy, converting it into electricity that can be used to charge gadgets, with special ports in the side of the chair for MP3 players, cameras and even GPS. And for extra cool points, it has a sliding laptop table so you can be connected in comfort. The concept, perhaps surprisingly, is the brainchild of designers at PC World. [Via Ecofriend]
