Corrections to designbrief (end of June)
As the design process has unfolded I have made some changes to the requirements for the final design. Most importantly I concluded that it was not feasible to have a small solar panel on each speaker. Instead I considered the problems of speaker charging and clean energy on a system level. So instead of requiring a solar panel the new requirement would be: An easily rechargeable solution that runs on clean energy.
