What if you could charge your device using your clothing? In Episode 4 of The Concepts, we talk to designer Pauline van Dongen about her Wearable Solar project that shows how solar cells can be integrated into fashion, repurposing clothes as alternative energy sources. Pauline speaks to how the line could evolve through factors like better battery life and washability, as well as its potential impact on the future of woven textiles and fabrics.
