Energy Diamond / Emergengy Comunication

Energy Diamond
Energy Diamond

There are problems of mobile communication and electricity system disruption in stricken regions. Disaster relief will be delayed if mobile phones cannot be recharged and rescue workers are unable to contact with one another.
EnergyDiamond is a modulized temporary communication station, which converts solar energy into electricity through glass with high refraction. It provides plugs and communication system for users to recharge their device and a bright resting space. The advantage of modulization is that it makes transport easier. The basic triangular structure can be easily changed and expanded to cope with various quantities users need.
