Outdoor furniture is always outside, so why not put some solar panels on them? Sun Table has created a table with a solar panel tabletop to be used outdoors. It charges in 3 hours and provides 13 amp hours at 12 volts, running "a laptop for over 3 hours or a TV for 4 hours."
Devang A. Shah, one of the table designers, stated, "A product that pushes people to spend more time outdoors will be beneficial for humanity. Let's get rooted in nature again, even if it's in a 21st century kind of way."
I'm not so sure about "getting rooted in nature" while on the Internet or watching TV, but I do like the free electricity.
The stainless steel table uses a NiMH battery and doesn't have any other toxic materials in its construction. Priced at $3,600, it's a bit out of reach, but if you want one, you can pre-order them at the Sun Table website.
