Ripple- the most advanced PV watchband for smart watch
Ripple is a watchband that uses solar energy to power one of the hottest smartwatch brands, the Pebble Time.
Ripple can support 13 hours of battery life with just one hour of sunshine. It’s actually more convenient for users to charge their smartwatches on-the-go without taking them off. Just add sunlight, no plugs or any other power source needed.
On this project, we partnered with Gixia Design Group, a premier design studio in Taiwan, and proved the concept of charging wearable devices to be viable.
Here’s a video demonstrating a prototype of Ripple:Ripple combines an aesthetically designed smartwatch with the benefits of sustainable charging by sunlight to provide longer-lasting battery life.
