Tiny Bonsai-Style Tree Harvests The Sun To Charge Gadgets

Like a majority of people, we too happen to be enamored by the excellence and style of Bonsai trees. This, we guess automatically makes things created in the image of bonsai trees look way better than what they already are. Apparently, the 27 solar panels on the tree generate enough juice to power it up in a mere 3 hours and can be used to juice up 9 iPhones.

That sounds like a pretty sweet deal, if you ask us, and almost unbelievable, if you ask our pessimistic side. The trees are on pre-order for €299 (~$405) with a minimum of 400 pre-orders required before the tree actually hits the assembly line.

iTree Is A Log, And A High-Tech iPhone Dock

iTree is a simple, yet magnificently high-tech dock the iPhone would probably love to be with. At its most basic, its just a tree log hollowed out and fitted with speakers and other integrated technology the customer would like the iTree to have. It can work with the iPhone, iPod, CD Player, and even a turntable if you’re inclined that way. The only little problem we see, is owning a speaker that huge, and as far as we can tell, this thing isn’t going to be cheap.
