The Liteon Eco Leaf is an amazing concept that replaces the traditional window blinds. The fabric used includes solar cells that recharge during the day, while blocking out the harsh sunlight at the same time. In the evening, the blinds emit ambient lights and jazzes-up the room. A delightful little display to one corner tells you the current room temperature. Quite a do-able concept if you ask me; kitsch and modern!
Eco Leaf is a 2011 Liteon Award entry.
