Sphelar Penguin

This penguin objet employs the spherical solar cell Sphelar. When receiving light, the penguin will “wake up” and the LED of the eyes will shine green.

Penguins are in a crisis situation due to global warming. This objet contains the wishes that clean solar energy using Sphelar spreads more, ensuring a more hopeful future for the endangered penguins and our planet.

Sphelar Penguin

A long-lasting shine in the eyes

The LED eyes of the penguin are directly connected to the Sphelar cells and sealed. Thanks to the simple structure, the deterioration of each part is minimum, so it will work for a very long time.

You can use it as a measure of the light intensity by placing it in places where light is necessary, such as near a plant.
