LUCE / Solar Powered Laptop pc "Luce" is a double solar panel powered laptop-pc made from clear polycarbonate. (Project shortlisted in Fujitsu Design Competition 2011). 2 solar panels, one on the top, one under the transparent touch-keyboard, provide the power for continuous recharge during all the day (during stan-by and use mode too). Luce, that in italian means light, it is a concept designed to turn maker's attention to real sustainable production. Wireless devices, powered by nature, completely free of cables, represent the future for a sustainable development focused on user's real needs. The recent disaster happened in Japan (March 11th, 2011) give us the confirm of how much is important to develop self-powered devices.

Luce
Solar powered laptop pc
Luce, that in Italian means light, is a completely wireless laptop pc made from clear polycarbonate and powered by 2 solar panels able to power the laptop continuously. One is located on the back of the monitor and the other beneath the clear keyboard, to allow the panels to recharge even as the user types and surfs the web. Recent events like the Japan earthquake (March 11th, 2011) and the nuclear crisis are a wakeup call for product designers to make use of renewable energy. In this way, even when a disaster strikes, people will still be able to communicate, whether there is electricity or not.
