If you’re planning a camping trip, you may want to pack a Shine. The small, portable device uses wind to generate electricity. It can power handheld electronics, such as tablets or phones. Wind power is a type of renewable energy. Unlike electricity generated by typical power plants, wind power doesn’t create pollution or use fossil fuels.
Often, wind power requires large, stationary structures like wind turbines. “We set out to create a wind power product that gives users the freedom to produce their own clean energy day or night, rain, cloud, or shine,” says Cat Adalay. She’s the founder and CEO of the company that developed the Shine.
