Here Comes the Sun! 12 Insanely Futuristic Solar Power Designs

Now, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Peppermint Energy is selling customizable versions of the one-stop power shop online, and the buzz just keeps on building. The Forty2 has a wide range of different functions, from powering TVs at tailgating parties to spreading clean, reliable power to the developing world (for example, the company recently blogged about bringing the Forty2 to Haiti).
