Here’s a new portable product that lets users take advantage of solar energy to power up a device. Designed by Kyuho Song and Boa Oh, the Window Socket attaches easily to any window, harnesses solar energy from its location, and transfers that energy into an internal battery. Users can then plug in any device or save it for later use.

The product is currently in the concept phase, but the designers hope to improve the storage capacity and efficiency of the portable socket in the near future.
