The Eco-Friendly Lux by Mae Yokoyama Emits Light at Night

These Lux solar panel necklaces by Konstfack student Mae Yokoyama literally have small solar powered shingles on them that charge in the sunlight, enabling the LEDs at the top of each panel to emit a small glowing light at night or in dim light conditions.

Although we weren’t expecting to see solar panel necklaces, solar panels were bound to become accessories after they boomed in popularity as adorable mobile phone charms.

"This useful product will help people realize the value of sun and will give a feel of elegance to fashion concerned personnel," Tuvie says of the Lux solar panel necklaces. "After charging for two hours only, the pearls can remain on for a minimum of four hours."

The Lux solar panel necklace looks surprisingly chic and would be an incredible innovative spin on the galactic fashion that’s been so popular in recent months.
