Solar blinds that keep the light for later

One of the most frustrating things about many of the gadgets powered by solar energy is that these can not be exposed to the sun long enough to be fully loaded when users need them. The Belgian inventor Vincent Gerkens, wanted to solve this problem and has created a concept of solar blinds that keeps the energy accumulated from the sun during the day and then replacing a lamp or two during the night when it uses that energy to light up.
The Blight blinds designed by Gerkens are equipped with thin photovoltaic foils which accumulates solar energy during the day and keep it for later to light the room during the night, thus saving the energy.
Blight blinds are durable and environmentally friendly because these don’t need eleectric cables and because the solar energy is clean.
