laptop bag/voltaic generator

Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

Love the idea, solar panels on the bag are powerful enough to charge your laptop - bag is made from recycled plastic bottles www.voltaicsystems.com. Unfortunately, at $599.00 it will stay just a lovely idea in this household!

And in mine, unfortunately. The battery on my laptop has packed up and at over £100 for a replacement (if I can get one as the laptop is ancient at 3 years old) I will be running it straight off the mains from now on.

Still, these things always get cheaper in time so maybe in a couple of years they'll be affordable.
