A solar-powered table that charges electronics? Sign us up.

Designer Marjan van Aubel partnered with Michael Graetzel and Solaronix to develop applications for their dye-sensitized solar cells—including the Current Table.

The table generates energy that can charge devices through USB ports. But what makes it so interesting is that the cells can generate power from indoor light, making the table the perfect workspace/charging station for myriad locations, including schools, offices, and more.
