Soft Rocker - Lounge that Helps Your Relax and Charge Gadgets

Share

Dubbed "Soft Rocker", this sleek sun lounge that allows anyone to relax also plays the role of a solar powered charger for your electronics.

It was designed and built by architecture students at MIT, led by Professor Sheila Kennedy.

It is worth mentioning that the furniture makes use of human power of balance to create an interactive 1.5 axis, and with the help of a 35 watt solar tracking system and 12-ampere hour battery, users can charge their cell phones and other portable devices.

The battery stores energy so the lounge can be used to charge electronics even during night hours. Inside there's also a strip of light tape that allows users to read and relax.
