I'll definitely want to do that, too. Solar Impulse is a great project and I was so proud when I heard that my employer Swiss Re will support them in taking the risk. Can't wait for the plane to fly across the US >

If I could I would by you a solar panel for Christmas.

Well, you can start with a solar-mobile-charger :-)

Wow, what a great idea! Super as a novel Christmas gift for someone here in Switzerland but I would imagine something like this could also be really beneficial in developing countries where electricity from a grid is not always available.
