Camera straps to possibly charge future devices

A new idea from online design magazine, Yanko Design, should get the attention of several camera manufacturers.

Designer Weng Jie’s Solar Camera Strap takes a thick neck camera strap and transforms it from a comfy strap to a comfy strap with solar cells all over it.

The idea of the sintotrap is to harness solar energy and send it back out to a camera battery while in the field.

Given the push towards solar panel use in houses, backpacks and recharge stations, we imagine it shouldn’t be too long before someone takes this idea and runs with it.
