You Can Now Charge Your Smartphone With Your House Plant
By Sophia Hyder, 27 Apr 2016
“If plants nourished ourselves in the past, it will nourish our cities in the future.”
This is what the creators behind the ‘Bioo Lite’ believe. The completely green phone charger harnesses energy from photosynthesis to charge your phone.
Bioo Lite has microorganisms living in the pot that break down the compounds made by the plant during photosynthesis into electrons, just enough to power up your smartphone two to three times a day. You can use any type of plant, soil, and irrigation, and you can connect any device to it, as long as it uses a USB port.
The super cool product has exceeded its crowdfunding goal and will be available in December.
