Lumos Design Tech designs, and sells a range of apparel fit with Solar Panels.
Their first product is a Mobile-charging Backpack. This product has already been prototyped and the second version is in works. A Laptop-charging Backpack is already in the design phase. A prototype for a Display T-shirt has also been prepared – this is a t-shirt that can play presentations or images or videos powered by Solar Panels/Batteries.
The audience is the age group of 25-35. These are working executives who use their Smartphone and 3G connection extensively and depend on their phones for critical work. They also care enough for aesthetic appeal and don’t want to be seen carrying around chargers looking for plug-points during meetings. They are always on the move and travel out of station at least once a week.
The founding team comprises two people – Gandharv S Bakshi and Lavina Mahbubani.
Bangalore based Lumos launched at UnPluggd6 today. The company did field a fair bit of great questions.
