In a first round of funding on Kickstarter, they secured enough funds to begin their journey. They want to revolutionize the production of microsolar that is done in the world.

Small solar panels are proportionately much more expensive to manufacture than large ones. With this invention, the small panels that we use to charge the smartphone, to turn on the lights in the garden or to power a lamp, will be accessible and inexpensive for any device that wants to be powered by solar energy.
