• Son-X solar-powered swing accessory makes playgrounds more competitive

  • There was a time when a playground was a simple iron and plastic affair. Kids would spend countless hours here, away from modern day gadgetry and the like. Now, giving playgrounds a touch of technology, Octavia has come up with a solar-powered swing accessory that turns the simple yet enjoyable swing into a competitive affair. With three different sound games aboard that coax kids to swing higher for rewards, the Son-X is designed to run indefinitely on solar power and can hold up against the elements too! Priced at a steep $625, the accessory seems like an over-priced though energy-efficient addition to the customary playground.
