Solar Powered Snowboard Charges Gadgets on the Slopes

Spend the day sliding down the slopes, and then plug your phone right into your snowboard to charge it. Signal Snowboards teamed up with Powerfilm Solar to create a solar-powered snowboard with flexible solar panels adhered to the top sheet.

Signal traveled to Mammoth Mountain in Northern California with skateboarder Tyler Flanagan. Check out the video below.

After a day of riding – and exposure to sunlight in the process – the board can charge batteries, phones and cameras.

This is just one of many everyday items that are being altered to include renewable energy of some kind, whether solar, wind or kinetic. Taking advantage of power sources that are available all around us, and nearly always wasted, these gadgets can help us save money and energy in many different ways.
