Tapping the Power of the Summer Sun

Nothing goes hand in hand quite like sunlight and swimming pools. That's why this solar powered pool skimmer from Hammacher Schlemmer makes almost too much sense. Two solar panels power the device as it continuously paddles the pool, scooping up debris. This is one sophisticated device; when the batteries are running low, it stops cleaning and seeks out sunnier areas to recharge. And when it becomes clogged, it reverses direction to rid itself of the junk. It holds two 3-inch chlorine tablets that slowly dissolve as the skimmer moves across the pool. It can be ordered online from the Hammacher Schlemmer Web site.

Put on Sunscreen for me.
Perhaps in the future they will have solar fabric that absorbs the suns rays so that I don't have to wear sunscreen and I can power my laptop.
