LG developing Solar powered EBook
LG is taking the E-book craze one step further by designing a reader that is powered by the abundant energy of the sun. The device is simply great for all those who don’t want their E-books to run out of juice in the middle of a sentence and also don’t want to carry a bag full of books on their next vacation. The device features a 10cm wide thin-film panel that’s just as wide as a credit card. The company claims that after spending about 4-5 hours under the sun, the device can provide about a day’s worth of reading time.
The first prototype of the device will be on display at the International Meeting on Information Display (IMID) this week.
