This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Meet SunMade Cheese! This tasty cheese plate is really a solar panel plus an array of solar powered accessories. There’s a brie cheese USB port and connector for the milk bottle power bank, a swiss cheese speaker, a ricotta lantern, and a caciocavallo cheese plasma lighter. The cheese plate collects energy from the sun and stores it in the milk bottle power bank. Embedded magnets and special connectors attach the milk bottle to each of the cheeses and bring them to life.
A solar panel on one side, cheese plate on the other. The panel generates 5 volts at 1.2 amps — enough power to charge a smartphone as quickly as a wall charger. Hang it from a window, a shoulder bag, a backpack or anywhere there is the sun! The solar panel itself does not store energy. Connect your smartphone or the power bank through USB cable to save energy. Or, you can simply plug Solar Milk into the panel and adjust to a 5, 30, or 60 degree angle to get optimal sun exposure.
As of September 20th, this project has raised $35,000 of their $100,000 goal. This project has 34 days left to raise the $100,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $35, you will get one Solar Milk power bank. For a pledge of $98, you will get one Solar Milk and Cheese Plate.
