The Solaris Sun Shade is a solar-powered umbrella concept that provides shade while powering a laptop and other gadgets - using solar energy to create new work and leisure spaces with the sun. Designed by José Vicente, the system is equipped with photovoltaic panels that allow users to charge their electronics with clean, renewable energy from the sun while sitting at a beach, park or outdoor cafe.

For example, did you know that if your solar panels produce more electricity than your home uses, the meter spins backwards, sending the electricity back to the electric grid for future energy credits?
