Wysips Keeps Mobile Working Round The Clock
A revolutionary technology to power phones has come from French manufacturer SunPartner Group.The technology called Wysips(What You See Is Photovoltaic Surface) converts energy from artificial light and sunshine into electricity to keep the mobile working. It uses light collecting crystals that can be fitted beneath or on top of the screens of phones,tablets and smartwatches.The early prototypes have been able to convert 10 minutes of light exposure into four minutes of extra battery life. SunPartner bonds a thin layer of photovoltaic material onto a network of micro lenses to produce a thin, transparent sheet.The Wysips crystal component is 90 per cent transparent,according to industry standards and is said to be invisible to the naked eye.The sheet does not impact on the phone's contrast,readability,angle of view or luminosity. The first prototypes are expected to be ready by next year.
