Modular Fabric Protects, Produces Solar Power

Back in 2008, Brooklyn's Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology, SMIT, created the world's first modular and wind-powered solar panels. Now, the innovative minds have created an even more impressive source for harvesting solar energy. Modular, weatherproof, durable, elastic, and efficient are only a few words of many that describe SMIT's Tensile Solar.

Hoping to create a substitute to bulky solar panels, SMIT's creation was created with adaptation and versatility in mind. By making Tensile Solar resistant and adaptive to weather as well as convenient and portable, the designers have been able to create an innovative alternative that is both stylish as well as practical. The architectural and industrious applications of Tensile Solar will be sure to create quite the fuss when it comes to solar energy production.
