Eclipse Solar Gear briefcase

Solarlaptopcase

The big green announcement at this year's CES is from Eclipse Solar Gear.  They've invented a laptop case that's sturdy and covered in chrome, and if you leave it by your window it'll also power up your laptop.  A good idea, although the practical implications seem a little off; solar panels work best when directly exposed to sunlight, which, sadly, doesn't happen often enough during the average workday.  However, while being carried to-and-from work it should, during its lifespan, generate more than enough juice to pay for itself.  [GT]
