Vodafone’s Booster Brolly is an umbrella that makes use of on-board solar cells and a micro antenna to charge your telephone and increase its 3G signal.
The umbrella, which is sadly just a prototype at the time of writing, is the outcome of a collaboration in between Vodafone and University College London. There are 12 silicon solar cells integrated into the canopy with each other they provide adequate juice to run the signal booster, an LED flashlight and a USB phone charger which is in a position to charge a phone in around 3 hours. That is a lot of technologies for the world’s most generally misplaced item.
