Self-Charging Cell Phone Screens Coming Soon
Sunpartner Group's Wysips technology (for What You See Is Photovoltaic Surface) can transform any surface into an energy-producing component.
Using the unprecedented combination of optical and photovoltaic properties, the Group has produced an ultra-thin, transparent component.
Thanks to a low-cost transparent panel, mobile phones should use solar power to charge themselves.
Sunpartner is working with a number of manufacturers and expect to see it built into mobile devices early next year.
