Going green and new technology are growing trends that also seem to be going hand in hand in today’s world. People are trying their best to “be green” while others are trying to develop the newest and the greatest pieces of technology. Others are combining the two, knowing that today’s society will be more accepting of green gadgets than something that could potentially harm the world.
Here are some examples of green gadgets that people have been coming up with.
One gadget is a solar powered WiFi repeater. Meraki is the company that came up with this solar-powered Wi-Fi repeater that can provide Internet access to people in remote regions. It is energy independent and is easy to set up. It is composed of a mesh radio, a solar panel, and a pole mount. However, though this gadget seems like something that you would want to go out and buy right away, you may want to hear about the price first. A major drawback, this gadget is priced anywhere from $900 to $1500 dollars. Yikes!
Looking to charge your batteries? Have you ever thought about using a solar powered charger to charge your batteries? That is right, you could be anywhere in the world, and you will be able to charge your batteries with this newly developed charger. Created by Energizer, this solar battery recharger is eco-friendly and will allow you to charge both your AA and AAA batteries. Of course, these batteries have to be rechargeable in order for the renewable energy to do any work. The Energizer charger also includes a USM port. This will allow you to charge various amounts of electronic devices, such as mobile phones, GPSs, cameras, and everybody’s favorite toy–the iPod. You can also use the charger like a typical battery charger would be used on a cloudy day or during the night.
Going green has become a huge fad. People have realized this, and they continue to come up with neat little toys and tricks that incorporate this fad with technology. I wonder what other little gadgets will be in existance in a few years from now.
