  5. Ted

    Awesome stuff here! I just don’t get the solar powered bikini. I mean, I’m a dude but still – I wouldn’t want a chord dangling from my two-piece bathing suit. I might buy it for myself anyway though… btw I’m joking XD

  6. MMM

    The solar powered shower has been around in one form or another for ages. I know I have used one for 20+ years.

    LOVE the solar lounge chair, beauty and function!

  7. Jay Moss

    The solar powered printer is a fantastically clever device. The sheer genius of it! Technological and artistic, wonderful!

  10. Critical Eye

    I call BS on the lawn mower. Seriously doubt that 6 solar cels could create enough power to spin the blade fast enough to work well.

  11. Muddy

    I think anyone wearing a solar hat would be solo

  12. Critical Eye

    Wait a minute… the solar bikini can’t be worn in the water! Is a swimsuit that can’t be used for swimming really an example of good design??

  13. Dave

    solar panels do more harm to the planet then they ever make up for in their lifetime..

  14. Sunidhi Garg

  15. key

    I’m an inventor looking for some helpful info on how to
    go about finding capital to help fund my solar concepts.

  16. Donald

    I am realy glad the world is stepping up. Solar panels are infact pollution free easy to make and install. the only down-fall is, that everything you thought possible has already been invented. I was half way done with my designed and found out it has all ready been invented. That is hard to take in.

  17. rolf

    i love solar and my panels produce twice as much i use i feel proud that i can make a difference But energy is priced by demand and when it is needed some thing that really could make a difference is instalations to store energy in massess in batteries or capacitors to bridge peak periods it not gona be cheap but if we dont become conservetive we kill the planet hence us ,our children, me ,every one of my friends
