USB Solar Power Never Looked So Good
A solar powered Bonsai tree, who would have thought? Vivien Muller did. Her design takes each end-point of the Bonsai tree and turns it into a small photocell.
Methodshop coined this as photovoltaic panels, but I like the term photogalactic a little better. The unit recharges a hidden battery beneath the tray – which happens to be the same place as the wires for your gadgets – so even re-charging can take place during the night. Of course USB support for those USB gadgets we all love.
As you can see, one could make a nice solor tree for their kitchen table or large office desk, but what if your space was a little more cramped? Well, the USB solar Bonsai can be redesigned and shaped to any dimension of your liking. It can spin, detach and rotate through small connectors.
So how much is this ingenious device cost? Not much right now, it’s just a prototype. Since this looks like such a great product, lets hope someone picks up the production rights. Wouldn’t you say Vivien?
