DRAGONFLY ENERGY / Solar power generator


Solar power is one of the sustainable ways to create electricity. However, there has been no significant innovative design change in solar power generators and the conventional design with 2D flat design has various limitations such as unable to collect sunlight from various angles and takes a large land area. DRAGONFLY ENERGY is a new solar power generator, which has an innovative design inspired by the body shape, wings, and motion of dragonflies. Due to its dragonfly design, it has a great potential in overcoming limitations of the conventional design and provides extra benefits to societies with its epoch-making biomimicry features.
