Add Houseplants to the List of Things That Can Charge a Smartphone

The charger harnesses the energy of photosynthesis

The every growing list of things that you can use to charge your smartphone includes chairs, the sun, regular old electrical outlets, and now, a potted plant. Bioo Lite is charger that uses the energy generated by photosynthesis to charge your phone 2 or 3 times per day. (Presumably, you have to be vigilant about unplugging the phone once it is fully charged.) It has already had a succesful Kickstarter campaign, and is now available for preorder for when it comes out in December.
