Recharge yourself and your electronics while relaxing with friends outdoors in Killian Court. Developed by architecture students at MIT, lead by professor Sheila Kennedy, the SOFT Rocker is a lounge chair where one can rest, while recharging the batteries of various devices.[source]
The SOFT Rocker leverages its environment in a dynamic manner by using the human power of balance to create an interactive 1.5 axis 35 watt solar tracking system. It combines hi-tech and low-tech design strategies: it produces electricity but engages the body and works like furniture “by hand”; it mixes sun tracking and social dynamics. Right now, it is a only student project. Seriously though, I want one!
