Solar Powered Tie Seems Great, Probably Won’t See Much Sunlight

Solar Powered Tie Seems Great, Probably Won’t See Much Sunlight

By Luke Anderson

So you want to do your part to save the environment by utilizing solar power. That’s great, however, a lot of solar products aren’t the easiest to carry around without making you stick out like a sore thumb. Well if you’re really dedicated to the cause, you might check out this solar powered necktie.

The idea here is that when the solar panels are arranged in a grid, they almost look normal on a tie. I’ve seen people wear some crazy ties, so this one might not look half bad, depending on where you work. Of course, if you work in an office, there’s a good chance that this thing won’t see enough sunlight to be all that useful. Sure, it’ll get some juice from the lights in the office, but I doubt it would be strong enough to charge whatever gadget you have connected. For now it seems only to be a concept, so for now you’ll just have to wear a regular tie, if you have to wear one at all.

    They definitely need to develop panels which can harness the power of “fluorescent light” for this tie to work. And perhaps a turbine that get’s energy from water draining out of the water cooler.
