Headset worships the sun even after summer

Finland's Iqua debuts solar-powered device.

Iqua

Iqua is an interesting company, and not just because of its unusual name. The Finnish company always seems to come up with noteworthy products, whether it's a wireless "miniUFO" car speakerphone or an L-shaped Bluetooth phone that attaches to the back of the headrest.

Its latest invention has gone green, a wireless headset powered by solar energy. The Iqua "Sun," developed with partner Suntrica, is based on the previous "Vogue" model (pictured here) that was a hit on the French market with conventional batteries, according to OhGizmo. It beats having to wear a solar collar all the time.
