Designer Weng Jie uses flexible panels to prevent dead batteries in DSLRs.

An eco-friendly concept design by Weng Jie embeds solar panels into a camera strap to help charge its battery. It makes sense considering wider straps more evenly distributes the weight of heavy DSLRs while also creating more surface area for solar panel integration. Outdoor photographers wearing the strap may no longer need to fear the untimely circumstance of when great shots are prevented by a dead battery.
