Sleek Futuristic Solar Car Could Power Your Home [Pics]

A stingray-shaped concept vehicle can collect and store energy.

British designer Omer Sagiv from London has created a solar-powered concept car that looks like a lustrous stingray when viewed from above. The SPV (Solar Powered Vehicle) is made of lightweight aluminum with flexible thin modules fixed to it. The aerodynamic shape allows it to effectively collect sunlight and turn it into energy. Any unused energy it collects and stores can then be used to power the driver’s home.

Although Sagiv’s concept vehicle might not go into production any time soon, there are other and more affordable solar-powered products on the market to help you reduce your carbon footprint, such as these IKEA solar-powered lamps.
