If your dog can pull you along on a sled, then chances are you’ve got a green mode of transport although picking up after its poop could prove to be on tedious affair especially when you are on a long trip. The DIY Solar Dog Charger prototype by Erik Schiegg makes the entire arrangement greener as it comes with a solar panel that is attached to a dog sweater. Hopefully your pooch won’t overheat while wearing a sensor and walking under direct sunlight for long periods of time. Hopefully the solar panels are efficient enough to juice up your connected devices within a short period of time, while you and Fido get a really good workout instead of staying at home and binging on chips and video games.
