It is common to hear the sound of music as one walks down the streets of Toronto during the day. The talk and chatter on cell-phones and the busy-clicking of buttons as someone writes a text message. But imagine the amount of energy being used to help function all these small devices that are used in our everyday lives. Which is why this integrated media series is about the design of the ecoPLAY, which is a like a mini computer phone that runs on solar power. Instead of plugging in the charger into one’s outlets, the ecoPlay can be taken around with leisure, as it charges throughout the day which is a great way to save energy for the environment.
