Borrowing design elements from the golden age of air travel, we’ve added our unique solar-electronics flair to create self-powered dynamic mobiles. Laser cut out of medium-density fiberboard, this easy-to-assembly glues together to create a truly Solar-powered moving mobile – no trickery!

We use our Solarengine technology to store up power from the solarcell and release it in a burst to the drive-motor mounted in the rear of the dirigible, making it rotate around the docking-tower on a brass-plated point. In low light it may take up to a half-hour before activations, but in direct sunlight it moves continuously. It’s an all-light-level solar powered mobile!
