Design Boom organized the Green Life Competition in Incheon, Korea in collaboration with 3709 designers from 96 different countries. While there were several cool designs in the competition list, one that caught our fancy and also the one that received about 1171 votes was the “Shelf” designed by Leon Zhu from China.
The Shelf is a device that can be attached to the back of the car and when your car is parked or when there is a lot of sunlight, you could cover your car and protect it from harsh sunlight. Moreover, the Shelf converts the solar energy into usable electricity that can be used to power the Air Conditioner in your car. It can also be used as a rear wing so that you get a lot of stability while driving at breakneck speeds.
It can also provide energy for other devices such as tail light and electronic equipment. I would have loved to get it for myself, but unfortunately it might not be available in the markets as it is not released to the retail market. Thanks to the solar cell board, it is one of the greenest devices around. Just keep your eyes open for a device like this.
