When you are in a building, the sun may not penetrate certain parts and so using solar energy is not an option. The same goes for building obscured by other objects such as trees and walls. The SunnyBot from the Cambridge based Solenica, is a cool piece of kit that will beam solar energy directly to your location even its two hundred yards away, providing you with free energy to use as you will, as well as illuminating dark rooms!
This what the SunnyBot is capable of;
SunnyBot is an easy-to-use cordless portable robot that is autonomous and brings the life-sustaining glow of sunshine to otherwise hard-to-reach spaces.
SunnyBot uplifts life by giving quality illumination – up to 7000 lumen – thanks to its full spectrum, unlike high-efficiency light bulbs (ie LEDs).
SunnyDuino is an Arduino-compatible open-source SunnyBot for hacking.
Just one SunnyBot can reduce your carbon-footprint by 1 ton/year.
SunnyBot helps your precious delicate plants grow indoors in a protected environment.
SunnyBot can increase the power of a solar panel.
SunnyBot can be used to generate concentrated solar energy.
SunnyBot works using a point-and-shoot technology. Just set it and forget it.
You can get involved with this project by backing it on Kickstarter from £5 ($8) up to £620 ($973).
