Giving a meaningful gift is an art. In a world dominated by gift cards, giving a gift that has had the personal touch added to it has become scarce. For XD Design, it's a priority to create products that "you would enjoy to give, happy to receive, and gladly use in everyday life." XD Design strives for developing meaningful gifts, making sure that all parties are more than satisfied with the product.
XD Design has developed a unique system that cuts down on carbon dioxide emissions, while embracing the opportunities of solar energy. The Ginkgo Solar Tree uses solar power to recharge phones and tablets. With a creative design, the Ginkgo supports iPhone, iPad, and Andriod products, with the capability of charging them in just 2 hours. With over 1.4 billion smart phones being charged each day around the globe, which is enough energy to accommodate for 450,000 homes, Ginkgo is able to help reduce that usage. In addition, Ginkgo is produced from sustainable materials, allowing it to cut down on the carbon footprint of the product.
Ginko has a stylish look to it, with an even greater purpose. It has the potential of playing a supporting role in the solar energy movement. I'm intrigued to see if XD Design would add the feature of being able to charge your laptop in their next model.
Overall, the Ginko is an interesting product and the idea POPs.
