Andrea Ponti‘s seamless integration of solar power into a laptop is what initially caught our eye – the majority of solar chargers out there are clunky third-party devices that require wires and bulky batteries. By contrast, the Luce laptop features an elegant integrated design that showcases the photovoltaic panels as an aesthetic and functional selling point.
As electricity prices continue to climb and solar technology steadily advances, we’d love to see a manufacturer take on this design and make it available to the public. Since laptops are portable by nature, it only makes sense for them to take advantage of one of the world’s most readily available sources of energy – the sun.
