Dog Solar Power Charging Station

(YouTube Link)


Solar Dog is a prototype cell phone recharging station developed by Erik Schiegg of Switzerland. The user mounts it on a dog's back to collect solar energy as it plays outside. Schiegg writes:

My Android phone is charged in no time... The dog feels good and I'm feeling good and planet mud is turned a little bit more into planet earth. But this idea would be interesting? for farmers around the world, letting their animals collect electricity, too. Without the cost and waste for installation and the ground.

That's exactly what I was thinking, Hedwig -- the dog will jump in the water and zap, ruined.

Good try, tho, Erik Schiegg of Switzerland. At least it shows thought and initiative.

and the dog will jump into the lake...or roll vigorously in the grass...or roll in a dead animal... I'm cracking up at the possibilities!

Absurd,why have the panel on a moving object? The dog will be moving around as dogs do,the dog will seek out the shade as dogs do. More enviromental mumbo jumbo.
