There have been some pretty cool pieces of furniture created in the past, and we have seen some pretty cool Eco friendly things as well; but, nothing combines these two things better than the SOFT Rocker.  This oddly shaped piece of wood looks like a teardrop shaped home depot do it yourself kit, but one thing stands out, there is a solar panel on the top.  This chair not only harnesses solar energy, but it gets power from motion as you rock it back and forth.  In addition to this, the chair rotates 360 degrees so it is always facing the sun.  All this power is used to light up a strip inside the chair and sends power to three USB ports capable of charging small devices like phones and tablets.  These chairs were developed by Professor Shelia Kennedy and her team of students.  Hopefully we will see these power chairs on porches and in parks worldwide.
