Plug your gadgets into the window with The Window Socket

Yanko Design

In another attempt to move the wall socket to the window so we can charge gadgets with sunlight, designers Kyuho Song and Boa Oh have created The Window Socket. The solar-powered charger suctions to your window to collect sunlight, and offers not a battery pack but a direct plug-in for pulling power from the sun.

Basically you just pop it on the window, plug in, and wait. Is it vaporware? Yeah. But it represents the fact that we are still trying to figure out how to gather renewable energy from the most obvious places in our homes.

One day... maybe one day...
