Sunflower Powerstation

Sunflower Powerstation

We love the tongue-in-cheek sunflower design of this solar powered CD player/charging station combination, but haven't found any evidence it has yet made it into production. With the CD controls and speakers on the stem, and the charging station on the base, this piece is an efficient and elegant addition to the panoply of solar charging stations available...

This desktop gizmo by Portuguese designer Ricardo Baiao captures solar energy and transforms it into electric power, allowing the uses to play CDs and to charge other electronic devices at the same time. This woud make a great addition for those of us lucky enough to have a window in the office, or to add a little eco-friendly vibe to any room in the house. We certainly think the Sunflower Powerstation is one of the more attractive solar charging options we've encountered, and we hope to see it in stores at some point.
