Integrating solar power into products

If going green is ever going to become more than a catch phrase, then it’s going to have to fit neatly within our current lifestyles.  Let’s face it; though most people WANT to feel good about their impact on the planet, they don’t want to work very hard.  That’s why products that integrate alternative energy sense and capability within their design are so exciting.  I like this example:  http://suntable.net/

the SunTable

The table collects power all day, arriving fully charged at meal-time.  And with a DC power outlet right in the table, the only thing left to do is start finding gadgets to power with it!   Outdoor dining may never be the same.  I don’t own one, so I can’t speak on user experience, but it’s certainly on the wish list.  What we really need next is plans for a DIY version!
