SUN TABLES

The Dutch designer Marjan van Aubel has designed a solar-powered-table that recharges small electronic devices. The table uses daylight to generate energy. It has an orange see-through glass panel as table-top which rests on triangular legs. Within the table are two USB charging points where devices can be connected and a small slanted light reveals how much charge is left so users know when to plug into its USB points.

The problem with sunlight has always been finding ways to harvest and store this energy for when it is needed. This table resolves this through simple physics. The time it takes to charge is variable depending on quality of light arriving at the surface of the table-top.
