The Electree+, A Solar-Powered, Induction Charging Bonsai Tree
The electree+ is a concept design that offers solar-powered wireless charging hidden inside a futuristic looking bonsai tree. The electree+ began life as a concept by French designer Vivien Muller, which he originally unveiled in 2008. Then, three years later, Muller tried to bring the device to market, kicking off pre-orders for the device beginning at $370.
Now, the electree+ has been redesigned to maximize its solar efficiency, and to be manufactured in the USA at much larger volume, and for less money.
