Solar Panal Brooch, Heat your drink.
What it is?
The Solar Heater Brooch was created by metals and ceramics artist, designer and architect Lorena Aguirre Coughanour who works under the brand name Chita Design. The brooch was conceptualized as trendy fashion-forward accessory that could also double up as a solar heater when opened and placed over a mug.
To use as a brooch, users simply have to separate the two pieces, place the bottom half under the dress and the other half over it and press the tabs together to secure. To use as a solar heater, the silver piece on the brooch has to be lifted and plastic loop pulled down. The electric loop can then be fastened into the nudges and the heater can then be placed over a mug of tea or coffee to heat it. The open panels act like a tanning mirror, absorbing and redirecting the sunrays into the mug, letting the liquid inside warm up with the radiated heat.
