Anyone familiar with Pixel Qi will know them for producing a range of displays that are readable while in direct sunlight. Well the sun theme continues with the introduction of a tablet platform that is capable of running on solar power!
The great thing about this device is that the solar panel only costs around £2 to produce, how the price of solar power has fallen over the past couple of years!
This panel will produce around 1W of power; this small amount of power is all that is required to power up the tablet, so long as the sunlight keeps going no recharging would be needed. Naturally, this is all new at the moment but things move fast in this business and so we could be seeing this style of product in the near future.
