Solar Energy, Band-Aids and The iPad

Those kooky but fun Korean design gurus are at it again. You’d be surprised how hefty the iPad is and that smooth surface is just begging to slip out of sweaty hands so the Band are band-aids you stick all over the back of the iPad to create traction. A little too kooky for ya? How about the Solar Panel Bag – yes a backpack with solar cells arranged into Steve Jobs’ favorite fruit. Let the whole world know you’re an Apple fan.

    Looks like Korean design gurus don’t understand how solar cells work. First the concept of a solar backpack is nothing new, it’s been around for a couple of years now. The key in solar panel energy is to get as much electricity as possible, meaning to cover as much area as possible. The solar cells themselves are usually square, and even if you make a circular shaped cell it will not cover the whole circle with the cells. And as I can see by the picture you have half cut solar cells….yeah, not going to work. All that set aside…What is up with the big Apple logo???? That logo is just asking to get you robbed…Yes, people get killed for and iPhone or an iPad. If you want this thing to sell, it should prob be marketed towards other electronics…What if I need a Nokia or a Zune charged? I don’t think people are going to buy this JUST to charge their iPad…
    The band aids are an interesting idea…Although they have cases to solve the slipping problem…

      I REALLY don't think that someone is going to mug you just to get an iPad. If you have a problem with the Apple logo, you need to find a better way to complain about it. Not that we even need complaints around here.

  • I am also curious why you are designing only for Apple? Does that mean you narrow down your own market? Hopefully you also create a model for others
