Project Description

When our electronic devices run out of power it feels as though disaster is not far behind. Society today is very dependent upon technology; besides being our main supplier of entertainment, it is also fundamental for many jobs. When devices lose power it can be a huge inconvenience. The Solar-Powered Backpack converts power from the sun to electricity for standard devices, enabling the use of electronic devices long after their usual battery life.
