Solar energy will always find its way into our daily lives and no matter what the end products could be, the results are simply relevant and beneficial; its future is filled with countless possibilities down from the battery power sources to the industrial functionality for which it could be applied and maximized. Simon Wilby, widely known for his inventive idea on how solar energy could be put to practical use in the form of solar-powered battery for mobile phone devices, has probably foreseen a future with the entire population that would greatly utilize the energy from the sun and which could run even the tiniest of gadgets not just for a good few minutes, but for an impressively long duration with a greater staying power.
It is often a given that innovations in the field of modern technology always have a room for more improvement now and in the future, an ideal in which Simon Wilby has already achieved through his The Smart One, the clever concept which anyone could pretty much just imagine but he has been able to materialize. What The Smart One’s real objectives are to ease up the functionality of mobile phone chargers, which in these days are as essential as the high tech mobile gadgets; in such a way that is cost-effective and even with the most minimal usage could give extra power to the batteries that has never been tried prior. And these are qualities of how solar energy should be – practical, safe and easy to use all over the world. While it is free and doled out to all of us to take advantage of, there seems to be a lack of a wider gamut of things that run on it and which is such as shame because when one of those things come out, people get either too skeptical or rather quite too eager too soon and then their interest fizzles out.
What else is out there wherein solar energy becomes the link to better our lives and the people around us? Well, there is so much more in store for the future of solar energy, and seeing it from the viewpoint of Simon Wilby and his innovative techniques in recreating the sun’s energy, surely there is more. In fact, he has started out a project bigger than his The Smart One invention – this time it is something that not only benefits a lot of people in a practical way, but also changes the ways some people in other parts of the world live and understand the essence of technology. The streetlamps of Barbados would never be the same after Wilby has incorporated his innately brilliant ideals to light up the communities that could probably have not seen what a bright night is supposed to mean in the real sense of the word.
