Apple might add solar charging features to its products at some point in the future, but we’re not quite there yet. Luckily for those iPhone 6 owners looking to charge their devices using the sun’s energy, there’s a crowd-funding project that’s taking Kickstarter by storm by promising to be the world’s thinnest and lightest solar charger in the world.
Called Solar Paper, the project has already convinced more than 2,400 backers to pledge almost $350,000, or seven times its original goal. The funding campaign still has 34 days to go, and the first Solar Paper products should start shipping at some point this September.
