Bioo Plant Pot Charges Your Phone with Photosynthesis

Bioo sounds too good to be true. The Bioo equips plants with an USB plug to use its Photosynthesis energy to charge devices.

Bioo Lite is plant pot that lets you harvest the energy generated through photosynthesis. The pot basically installs a USB plug that connects to the plants energy generated through photosynthesis.

According to the Indigogo project page the system is able to take the energy produced in the soil surrounding the roots of the plant and transfer it as electricity using its "process."

Bioo how it works

The harvested energy is enough to charge your smartphone 2 to 3 times per day according to the Spanish team behind Bioo Lite. We will know if Bioo really works by the end of the year. The 99 Euro Bioo Lite pots are supposed to ship in December 2016. The Bioo Lite has surpassed its funding goal of 15,000 Euro on Indigogo already in the first couple of days, standing at 31,145 Euro right now.

The absolute coolest plant pot would be a combination of the Bioo Lite with the iGrow pot we reported about earlier this month. The iGrow makes it easy to grow your own produce. Using both technologies you could charge your iPhone and eat the salad that generates the photosynthesis energy.
