Rawlemon’s beautiful, spherical solar energy generators

Despite their noble cause of harnessing clean, renewable energy from the sun, solar panels tend to be aesthetically uninspiring. Solar start-up Rawlemon aims to change all that with a new, and undeniably beautiful, take on concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology. Created by Andre Broessel, a German architect inspired by his daughter’s toy marbles, the Rawlemon design uses a spherical lens to concentrate sunlight on a small photovoltaic panel and combines this with a dual-axis pivot that tracks the movement of the sun. According to the designer the transparent sphere is able collect and concentrate diffuse where traditional devices cannot and as well as providing an efficiency boost, they can be used in far more locations than their flat, fixed counterparts. It’s also claimed that by concentrating the sun’s light in one area, the Rawlemon design reduces the solar cell surface required to just 1 percent of that required by a traditional panel. Rawlemon aims to bring a range of devices to market starting with the 10-cm (3.9-in) Beta.ey S phone charger, which it is currently the subject of an Indiegogo campaign. The funds raised are earmarked for the production and certification of the Beta.ey S. The charger is compatible with any phone that uses a USB 2.0 charging port and has a battery storage capacity of 27.5 Whr. (via Rawlemon’s beautiful, spherical solar energy generators)

Exxon Mobile is Realizing Corbusier’s Dream in Houston. The corporation is building a complex 25 miles north of Houston proper that will contain 20-some buildings with office space for 10,000 workers, and has spawned a series of nearby sleeper suburbs. This mega-development will not only look like something out of 1920s Europe, but it will remarkably change the urban layout of the notoriously sprawling city. Read more.
