Charge Your Phone With This Potted Plant
Using the natural system of photosynthesis, a novel way to channel electricity
Due to the growing number of creative gadgets, soon we might not need our standard phone chargers. From a charger that converts fidgeting to electricity and a charger that uses water and oxygen to charge devices, the range of devices only continues to grow.
So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that now one team has figured out a way to charge mobile phones using a plant. Bioo Lite is a plant with a USB socket in the shape of a rock that easily fits into the plant’s pot. It uses an automated irrigation system, water purification system and biological nanowires to take advantage of the process of photosynthesis to create electricity.
