No, this isn't the next Mars lander, nor is it some sort of biology experiment. This impossibly unruly contraption is a concept for how NTT DoCoMo would like y'all to juice up your phones in the future. The system apparently involves a solar array employing spherical silicon cells, yielding efficiency far beyond that old-skool array your granpappy used to use. No word on production plans for this thing, but given everything we know of DoCoMo, it will hit the streets eventually -- and when it does, we can only hope it gets a little smaller.
