All about Eco Solar Fashion Tech Clothing Trends
The future of Solar clothing
Do you like to walk or run enjoying music in your iPod? But only until the battery goes flat!
Nowadays scientists, designers and fashionistas are working on a solution that would keep the music playing by efficiently turning you into a walking human battery: solar-powered clothing.
Flexible solar cells, which can be integrated into watches, jackets, shoes, trousers, coats and any other garments, are only a year away, claims some experts and brands. The cells work like solar panels, converting light into energy. The wearer would plug in gadgets such as media players or mobile phones to a particular compartment on the piece of clothing, which in turn connects to the solar cells.
Sunlight permitting, the solar-cell apparel could supply the needed boost to battery and mobile devices technology and be the next eco-friendly trend alternative for a sustainable and green future.
If you are interested by this solar technology, brands such as Silvr Lining from Los Angeles or solar panel bikinis by the fashion designer Andrew Schneider should answer to your demand.
Nevertheless, these clothes and items will probably target for the moment only the 100% eco-tech minded people. Indeed for the standard customers, new long lasting batteries are set to flood the market and our mobile devices, allowing cell phones and media players to run for as long as a month off of a single charge.
However other people instead working on the fashion design put all their energy into a really problem such as availability of clean water in some part of the world. Ryan Lynch and Marcus are working on a Solar Bag which uses the SODIS (solar water disinfection) method of water purification which could be a life saver in dry region such as Africa where clean water is rare and precious. The Solar Bag project in early stage of development but we can just hope that this life-needed eco-healthy product will be manufactured as soon as possible.
