If this new cute, yet functional, concept by Bora Kim, Kimhyelyn and Park Jong Duck, makes it to production, it’s sure to get kids interested in the idea of alternative energy. Entered in the IIDA contest organized by designboom, the Solar Beetle “featuring small solar panels on its surface, is a way for nature lovers to recharge their electronic devices.” If I had this solar charger, I would run my iPhone battery to nil, then when my kid requests a game, I can have him watch as the Beetle charges the mobile… Mean? Hey, it’s a learning experience!
