SolarShade / solar flying shade

SolarShade
SolarShade

Sun shades block strong sunlight during long outdoor leisure activities or social gatherings, but are difficult to install when the ground is not solid or the party is frequently moving. SolarShade is a smart sun shade with Flexible Thin Film Solar Cell and quadroters that can be installed anywhere. The quadroters driven by the solar cell stably floats the screen and easily controls its position whenever desired. Flexible Thin Film Solar Cell is light enough to be flown by quadroters and is suitable for deformation. A flexible display can be attached to the downside of SolarShade to show ads. Smartphones can control the quadroters.
