Sun rocker

Soft Rocker is a solar powered outdoor rocking lounger that allows you to recharge your internal battery -- and those of your electronics. Developed by architecture students at MIT, the furniture piece uses the human power of balance to create an interactive 1.5 axis, 35 watt solar tracking system. The lounger utilizes a 12 hour battery storing the solar energy harvested during sunlight hours so you to charge your gadgets even after sunset.


Several rockers are currently installed on MIT's killian court for temporary use.

Neat! I can see something like this working well on a college campus or a coffee shop.
