Charge your phone with plant power


Over the years we have come across several unique ways of charging one's smartphone, but if you are looking to do your bit for the environment, you might be interested in an Indiegogo project for a plant pot called the Bioo Lite, with the goal behind the plant pot being that it will be able to charge your phone while housing a plant at the same time.

Now you might be thinking that this is basically a plant pot that doubles as a battery pack, but the reality of it is that it will actually draw energy from a plant's photosynthesis process in order to provide the power needed to charge a phone. Its creators are also claiming that even with their implementations, it will not harm the plant in any way.

"This matter is produced with or without Bioo, it is simply part of the essential process of photosynthesis in which every plant has to take part to live. This way, we are not forcing the plant to do or create anything else rather than what it always makes. It does not harm the plant in any way, either the technology or the process applied, and so environment is also a great winner from the implementation of this revolutionary technology."
