Project Description

Solar gear design

Kaleidoscope leveraged knowledge from the consumer goods and emerging technology markets to create an innovative Orange Solar Tent product design concept.  The annual Glastonbury music festival draws crowds from around the world to celebrate performing arts, the great outdoors and worthy causes. To address the on-site power needs of Glastonbury’s eco-conscious campers, Kaleidoscope teamed up with Orange—one of the world’s leading telecommunication providers.

CHALLENGE

By combining solar power and camping systems, we designed earth-friendly solutions that allowed festivalgoers to power their mobile phones, camping gadgets and other electronic devices.

 

 

SOLUTION

To develop and enhance the solar tent concept, we conducted thorough research into emerging energy and communications technologies. This research allowed us to showcase Orange Mobile’s enormous potential as a future innovator in the burgeoning field of creative energy solutions.
