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.
