Eclipse, certainly not that mouse from Mad Catz or the LiteTouch LCD Keyboard. It’s a new concept name for Sony called “Eclipse Solar Media Player” that should be mounted at a unique area and call self-power up with the hold of the bright sun.
Eclipse Solar Media Player has used photovoltaic cells on its rear side, which should be fully exposed to the direct sunlight. The media player come with a suction cup, which will let you installed it on the clear glass window.
The design is certainly interesting because Eclipse is a slim type media player, but it still has a compartment that could store an iPhone when it has fully synchronized.
As for the connection, Eclipse solar media player is featuring WiFi and bluetooth connectivity which could hook up with all bluetooth-enabled gadgets (mp3 player, iPhone, cell phones, etc) and go online on WiFi network. A built-in speakers also available, and there is also a good looking touchscreen LCD display on top that will display the album arts, equalizer, apps for weather updates, podcasts and radio.
According to Hoang M Nguyen & Anh Nguyen, Eclipse Solar Media Player will have its own iPhone Apps that will let iPhone users enjoying ‘interesting screen savers as you play your favorite songs‘.
Kinda sold by the concept, just wish Sony would pick up this design and produce it as a real stuff soon!
