Solar Bonsai Tree Lets You Charge In Style

If you don’t have a green thumb, but love your electronics, the Electree could just be the perfect house plant. The Solar Bonsai Electree was created by French designer Vivien Muller and recently appeared on the Red Ferret tech blog. The bonsai-inspired tree has 27 solar panels at the tips of its branches that capture the sun’s rays and uses them to charge your electronics.

Said to be modeled after the photosynthesis that takes place in trees, the amorphous silicon solar panels capture solar energy, which is then stored in the 13 500 mAh battery located under the panel of the bonsai. The tree needs 36 hours of sunshine to fully charge.
