The Sunflower Monitor From Marko Vuckovic is Run by Sun

Computer geeks may start catching a tan thanks to Marko Vuckovic Sunflower Monitor. The Sunflower Monitor is a conceptual computer monitor powered by the rays of the sun.

The Sunflower Monitor has four solar-panels that can be activated by switching the Sunflower into "sun" mode. The Sunflower Monitor also has its own hard drive that can be synced via Bluetooth.

I think the Sunflower Monitor could be incredibly successful in our increasingly eco-friendly world. There are millions of computer monitors across the country tapping into the grid and putting a strain on power plants. The Sunflower would help businesses and homes go green with virtually no effort involved at all. Add in the money saved by unplugging your monitor permanently from the grid and you've got the first computer peripheral that could actually be deemed a smart long-term investment.
