New Radius Backpack can Charge Device Using Solar Power Beads

Dutch designer Pauline van Dongen has developed a new pack named as Radius backpack, which has integrated solar power beads to simplify charging of smartphones and tablets.

The bag was constructed using single piece of fiber. The material used is a jersey fabric, which is created by using different yarns and data-driven knitting machines. The material is patterned with ridged lines and dots to give the bag more texture. It is made using specialty yarns that claim to create various dimensions.

Radius backpack is handy bag with a strap that utilizes energy form sun and a built-in cable. The collected energy is sent through the charging cable to recharge the required device. “From afar, the strap appears to blend with the knit of the top lid. But a closer look reveals how light breaks on a beaded surface,” said van Dongen. “This magical material holds secret powers: each bead is a tiny spherical solar cell that is woven into the fabric, creating a unique energy harvesting textile.”

The purpose of these varying dimensions is to provide extra padding on the backside and shoulder straps for making it comfortable to the user. The designer explains that specialty yarns are combined with high shrinking effects. In 2013, the same designer had created a capsule collection that featured solar-powered panels under cleverly-placed flaps to turn clothing into a portable phone charger. However, the cost of the Radius backpack is not disclosed by the manufacturer yet.
