German architect André Broessel of Rawlemon has designed a solar cell phone charger and atmospheric lamp that follows the sun’s path to allow for maximum powering up.

Broessel built the Beta.ey based on the technology from his previous project, the betaray spherical glass solar energy generator, which used a glass ball lens to improve energy efficiency.

The Beta.ey is mounted on a dual axis tracking system and is small enough to fit on a regular desk. It works across all mobile devices. At night it transforms into a stand-alone atmospheric lamp with a colored RGB LED light.

Beta.ey is currently raising funds on Indiegogo. Backers can purchase their own solar charger and atmospheric lamp for $149. The funds raised will go to production tooling, large component order, global certifications, and continuous development of Rawlemon’s products.

Watch the intro video of the spherical glass generator below.
