Loungers orient the rockers towards the sun so that the flexible photovoltaics attached on the rocker's outer hull can transform solar radiation into the energy needed to charge a cell phone, iPod, or even a laptop. At night, the stored power then illuminates the interior with a cool aqua glow, making for a place to chill out in daytime or at night.
Phil's comment: "Emily, you're to scale!" (as in, you're small enough to look comfortable inside of these rockers) See the website for more artfully-captured photos.
