Rydon Pixio: Solar Powered Bike Light Never Needs Batteries

There’s nothing more annoying than having your bicycle light give out in the middle of a night ride. It can also get dangerous. That’s why I think that a light that can be recharged using solar energy is a good idea, so you won’t have to remember to change batteries and get caught in the dark.

The new devices these groups have built are much simpler to build than quantum computers but could some day perform some of the same tasks.
