rotterdam-based consultancy studio WAACS has created the ‘rollable solar charger’ to enable green energy usage on-the-go. the design is based on ancient papyrus rolls, combined with modern day flexible solar cells to ensure that traveling without electricity will no longer be a problem. a major advantage of solar charging is that it is not restricted to an electrical outlet and people will be able to worry about short battery life again. the sustainable product is made of lightweight aluminum and is compact in size so that it can easily fit into a bag.
