SOLAR Mp3 Player

SOLAR mp3 player adopts silicon thin-film cell to generate electricity. It’s bendable. Applying patterns through changing the display of the film and cutting off the cell tape makes it more variations.
The styling of SOLAR mp3 player is based on necklet, and if pulling out the silicon thin-film cell tape, it becomes like a necktie. When user wears it on neck, the position is just on the chest that is directly facing lights. User doesn’t need to do any self-conscious actions, just uses it directly to receive lights. Also the cell tape can be storage into the main body of this mp3 player.
