The needs to go green, be mobile, and be productive collide in Andrea Ponti’s concept design for solar powered laptop, one that does not require a peripheral attachment to harness the power of the sun. Designed with a solar panel behind the monitor and one beneath the touch keyboard, it would be the first completely-solar laptop ever… if it gets produced.

That part of the equation is unclear at this point. While it did not win a prize at Fujitsu’s 2011 design competition, it is reportedly shortlisted amongst their potential projects. Dubbed the “Luce” (Italian for “light”), it weighs 1850g (4 lbs) and is made of a clear polycarbonate.
