The B.torics Spherical Generator

What the WHAT? This crazy solar orb screams "technotopia," and it's super-powerful in addition to its futuristic looks. Built by the geniuses over at rawlemon, the orb can concentrate sunlight up to 10,000 times, making it one of the most efficient solar generators in development. It can be installed into building walls, or displayed in public places as both an energy creator and a kickass piece of modern art. Since it looks like a giant crystal ball, we wouldn't be surprised if it can tell your fortune too. Win-win-triple-win.
