Diffus Design creates the solar handbag
This cute messenger bag from Diffus Design may look just like any other purse with a shiny quilting effect, but it's actually covered in lots of tiny solar panels.
The team behind the creation have added 100 miniaturized monocrystalline silicone "sequins" to the design of the bag, so that it not only looks distinct, but it can use solar energy to recharge your cell phone. Any of the energy that isn't used during the day is stored in a special battery which then adds a glow to the bag at night to make things easier to find!
