Solar Powered Beach Umbrella

We love the concept designs over at Yanko, from Yo-Yo Power to two wheeled cars for China. But this one might be our new favorite.

Heading to the beach? Why not waste all that sunlight? And what if your boombox runs out of batteries? That's where the Sun~Brella comes in. It's just like any normal beach umbrella except it's coated with solar panels and has an electrical outlet on the stem. And, for those super-hot days, it's even got a built in fan just under the panels.

Screw it into the ground on a sunny day and you'll collect enough energy to power your iPod, your eBook, and keep your beers cool. Damn, there's nothing wrong with that. There's a more complete picture after the jump.

Beaches are windy
written by Andy Simonds, May 01, 2007
I think the concept is great, but the picture sort of ignores the click here rx online cialis basic concept that most days on most beaches across the world are windy. A flat surface like that will get launched by even a 10-15 mph wind. not to mention the fact that it will likely be more top heavy than a normal umbrella. The only design I would believe is a very thin and flexible solar fabric across a typical concave unbrella.

I surfed over to yanko and that article is dated 28 Oct 2005! And here we are discussing it in 2007.. smilies/grin.gif

Unfortunately, like most cool ideas, this just isn't practical.

And IIRC, Sunbrella is a registered trademark of an outdoor fabric company.

I think that the idea could be developed considering that this product is not already realised. It could be the opportunity to begin a sort of buisness....what do you think!!!

It would be usefull to formalise defined project propose it to viagra online in spain the some company in order to build a prototype...why not...

I'have not seen nothing of the beach, open swimming pool, resort etc. etc.
