Solar ‘Energy Apple’ Tree from Greendix
Greendix and Sonelis previously launched the world’s first leaf-shaped solar panel, which was followed by the world’s first solar-powered football. Now the two companies have launched the world’s first solar-powered“energy apple” tree, which utilizes the leaf-shaped panels to harnesssolar energy.
The concept pushes the idea of seamlessly integrating solar powerinto our surroundings. The energy apple consists of an apple-shaped battery that is charged by solar leaves. The apples glow while getting chargedand also change colors, from green to red, to show when they’re ripe tothe used.
The trees can be placed outdoors, where they can beautify thesurroundings and also harvest clean energy. Once charged, the energyapples can be removed from the tree and used as a charger for portable electronic devices. Greendix also stated that the energy tree can be designed into any kind of shape and an everyday consumer can just use the solar apples to keep their electronic gear charged.
