Electree’s Solar Bonsai charges

 

Electree is a modern sculpture imitating a bonsai, the leaves of which are small photovoltaic panels.

 

It allows to recharge your mobile devices without using any other energy than light.

Usage is strictly limited to indoors.

 

Electree is delivered in modules which you assemble to create your own tree. This method makes it possible to produce an infinity of different shapes. You can model it according to your wishes and at the same time optimize the orientation of the photovoltaic cells and thus increase its effectiveness.

The structure is equipped with 27 cells, for a bulk height of roughly 40cm.

 

Energy produced by the panels during daylight is stored in a base hidden battery. Once charged, this accumulator feeds a USB port.

 

 

► Kermit Sings (It’s Not That Easy) Bein’ Green (from “Sesame Street”) ♫

It’s not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold…
or something much more colorful like that.

It’s not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ord’nary things.
And people tend to pass you over ’cause you’re
not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
or stars in the sky.

But green’s the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain,
or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
Wonder, I am green and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful!
And I think it’s what I want to be.
