SolarStroller
SolarStroller

SolarStroller is a stroller with cooling and heating system driven by Flexible Thin Film Solar Cell on the cover. Many mothers, stroller users, are concerned about the temperature change due to weather. SolarStroller has soft cooling fans at the sides of the cover and a heating wire inside the liner and handle. In summer the cooling fans ventilate air inside the stroller, and in winter the heating wire keeps both the baby’s body and mother’s hands warm. The solar cell on the cover also prevents the baby from exposure to UV radiation. Flexible Thin Film Solar Cell is suitable to cover the stroller due to its flexibility and lightness.
