The Walnut Player is a concept MP3 player that can be “walled rolled” to charge. It has been designed by the industrial designer YuKwang Kang and features two spherical objects, which when rolled in your hand, allow the generation of renewable electricity to charge its own onboard battery.
Industrial designer Matthew Smith is working to reduce dependence on non-renewable energy sources to power our electronic gear. Since these gadgets are a part of mostly everybody’s life, the total electricity required to keep them ticking is substantial. Matthew is providing solutions by designing gadgets that can be powered by renewable forms of energy, such as kinetic energy.

Industrial designer Njegos Lakic is envisioning the future of cooking appliances, when systems that are safe and green will rule the market. The designer has come up with a conceptual cooking panel that is flexible and can be spread on any surface to cook food or prepare a steaming cup of coffee.
The Electrolux Invico, as Lakic calls his design, is a stylish heating plate equipped with a touchscreen LED panel. Whenever the user needs to cook, the plate can be spread over any hard surface to being with. Made from independent silicon blocks, the plate senses the presence of a metal object on it and provides heat using stored solar energy.
The user can select the heating time using the LED touchscreen display, after which the plate automatically turns off. Since the plate provides heat only to metal objects, it is completely safe if you have kids at your home.
Lighting Science Group has created a new range of LED streetlights that run entirely independent of local power grids. The sustainable streetlights harvest solar energy to power a series of energy saving lights, which are being claimed to be more efficient that regular HID streetlights.
Designed by Jia Dai, the MIA Electric Flashlight Lamp is what many were always missing in their camping gear bag. The concept device combines the features of a LED flashlight and a lamp in one environmentally friendly package.
Industrial designer Hoang Nguyen has taken inspiration from the solar eclipse to create an environmentally-friendly concept MP3 player that runs on renewable solar energy.
Christened the Sony Eclipse, the concept integrates photovoltaic cells for power generation.
