About

Wireless technology brings great comfort of mobility and freedom. Unfortunately, like any other mobile technology, it craves large amounts of energy. We wanted to create a practical and environmentally conscious nomad headset in accordance with our ethics and our vision of tomorrow. We imagined a hybrid headset, carrying a photovoltaic film which captures the sun’s energy. This electrical intake covers most of the energetic needs of the headset, even when the sky is cloudy. These solar cells are an unlimited source of clean and free energy. We have patented this project.

Helios, a wireless headset (bluetooth connected) is conceived with a solar panel mounted on the top face. Power is drawn from natural light through the solar panel in order to recharge its internal battery. It is not possible to extract the collected energy to recharge an external device.  There is also a possibility to recharge through an AC outlet.

WHERE DOES HELIOS INNOVATE COMPARED TO EXISTING TECHNOLOGIES ?

HELIOS uses a non-polluting process to recharge its internal battery through a photovoltaic film located on top of the headset. It provides the necessary energy for the Bluetooth 4.0 technology to operate while always having the possibility to recharge the device using a cable through a Micro-USB port.
