This Self-Charging Bluetooth Speaker Runs on Solar Energy

By tapping into the power of light, a new cutting-edge speaker from Swedish audio brand Urbanista is able to charge itself.

The company's "Malibu" speaker works by using a built-in solar cell to harness energy from both indoor and outdoor light—no matter the source—allowing it to run day and night with unlimited charge. The unit's solar cell takes up almost all of its surface area, giving it plenty of space to soak up light.

The sustainable bluetooth speaker delivers quality sound in the same way a plant synthesizes energy from the sun. Not only does the it charge itself, but it can also withstand a variety of conditions like sand, dirt, dust and even water—the speaker is fully waterproof.
