And that solar panel, which is about the same size as the palm of your hand, is conveniently placed on the back of a jacket, allowing your cell phone battery to charge while you’re outside.

“There can be a couple of clouds in the way and it still charges.”

Their invention enabled them to compete at the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in San Francisco where they got the attention of major companies, including Google to MasterCard.

Kemp and Stephens are currently working on getting a patent for their solar powered, cell phone charging clothes.
