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. The heart-quake, the Fukushima's power-plant accident, then the related Tokyo's energetic problem have highlighted the direction for a real sustainable development based on natural resources.

Solar powered laptop pc
The Luce, Italian for “light”, is a completely wireless laptop computer made of clear polycarbonate and powered by 2 solar panels for continuous charging. One panel is located on the back of the screen and the other underneath the clear keyboard to allow non-stop charging even as the laptop is being used. Recent events like the Japan earthquake (March 11th, 2011) and the nuclear crisis are a wakeup call for product designers to design products that use renewable energy. In this way, even when a disaster strikes, people will still be able to communicate, whether there is electricity or not.
