The Solar Pocket Factory is the first product designed by inventors Shawn Frayne and Alex Hornstein. Their design, which by now has completed a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $27,500 over its $50,000 goal, is a clever DIY take on solar manufacturing.
The prototype device fits in a suitcase and can create a small panel every 15 seconds. The team hopes to change the world of microsolar with their clean-tech invention through crowd support, and have recognized the ambitious nature of their goal to disrupt the billion dollar microsolar industry.
The Solar Pocket Factory’s panels boast savings per watt compared to the current market rates, operating at $1 per watt rather than $1.50 to $1.75.
