Redferret thinks it looks like a bag designed by a Klingon. We think it looks functional and funky. Check out the Konarka Solar Powered Computer Case (now available, finally, in the US) and decide for yourself.
Constructed of tough, weather resistant tarpaulin, this bag does more than carry your laptop, it powers it–via award-winning Konarka Power Plastic, integrated into a side panel. Energy collected while you walk, bike, or leave the bag laying in the sun gets stored in a power capacitor, which comes with a built-in energy meter, so you’ll never be left wondering exactly how much juice your bag has left. While it’s great for laptops, this bag (like most solar bags) can also be used to charge a plethora of personal electronic devices through its many connection tips (included).
If all this sounds vaguely familiar, it may be from your last airplane trip, as the Konarka Solar Computer Case is now available through none other than that fount of all things you never knew you needed (but feel strangely compelled to purchase, at 5,000 feet), SkyMall. Depending on the model you choose, these solar bags will run you $149.99-$169.99.
