“Most photographers use a sturdy camera strap while clicking pictures and here’s an idea that wants to capitalize on it. This is done by making the strap solar-savvy! Meaning, adding thin solar films across the width of the strap, so as to harness solar energy when out on the field. Aptly christened the Solar Camera Strap, it’s a neat idea; when we can have solar panels on backpacks and what not, then why not on a camera strap!”

The Design Critic: Pretty nifty, would be a great alternative to lugging around extra batteries.
Our verdict: Feasible, but would the solar panels generate enough energy to power the camera? Probably in the near future. Looking forward!
