Zegna debuted their Solar JKT at an Italian fashion show this week. The solar powered jacket is made with conductive textiles and a solar panel in the collar, allowing the person wearing it to charge cell phones and iPods through the jacket.
Implications - Besides recycling, reusing scrap for artworks and electric cars, there are other ways to go green. Solar power is still a dominant method to power various electronics as an attempt to conserve electricity. Since then, companies have started to think small in a sense that they want to charge items without humongous solar panels. Perhaps smaller solar-powered items like this jacket will appear in an effort to harness the energy of the sun without the inconvenience of large contraptions.
