In case there was still any doubt that solar is rad, the dudes at Signal Snowboard have made a snowboard equipped with solar panels that can actually charge your phone. Wait, should I be talking more like a snowboarder? I meant to say it can, actually, like, charge, like, your phone.
Mind you, you can’t charge the phone while you’re boarding, because you’d have to actually have your phone on the board, and you would probably, like, break your phone. But while you are relaxing in the lodge or whatever, you can so totally, like, charge your phone, using power that the board’s super-thin, super-flexible solar panels collected while you were out shredding the pow pow gnar gnar.
