collapsible solar powered lantern : by jesper jonsson

Project Soul Cell was designer Jesper Jonsson's thesis project last year. I'm hoping to see this developed as a real product sometime soon. It's an attractive and intelligent lantern -- small and collapsible, and powered by the sun through the panel at the top. This one is sized for soft lighting and hangs easily from the little handle. Jesper suggests hanging it from your bike handles when you're set up for an evening picnic in the park.
