Future Apple Devices May Be Solar Powered
Ever since NowPublic member Innes Yates got me thinking about solar powered electronics I've been interested in this field. Apple is always ahead of the curve and this is no exception.
Employees at Apple have filed a patent for integrating solar cells into portable devices by placing them underneath the layers of a touch-sensitive display, according to the filing.
Solar power could help make devices truly portable, freeing from the need for wires to connect them to a power supply.
