Apollo Wearable Solar Generators
The Zimtelligence Apollo is solar generator that fits on your arm! It collects energy from a sunny day and stores it in an onboard battery. Simply plug in your cell phone, tablet or e-reader to recharge. Great for camping, backpacking, overseas travel, power outages, natural disasters and the occasional zombie apocalypse.
Is your battery low? Come by the booth and recharge your mobile device for free!

Bio: My name is Zimmer Barnes, inventor of the Apollo. I was one of the subjects of the Emmy-nominated documentary, "Superheroes" for my time as the Technology and Medical Officer of the New York Initiative. I successfully launched the Apollo on Kickstarter in 2012 and have taken the Apollo online and to Maker Faires this year. I'm a proud member of the ATX Hackerspace!
