French Inventor Unveils Prototype for Electrical Charging Bonsai Tree

Going green and being wireless are both “it” trends in the tech world.

It's with those trends in mind that French designer Vivian Muller designed her Electree, a solar-powered device that models itself after the always timeless design of a bonsai tree.

The tree features 27 rotatable branches each, which have their own solar-panel "leaf." Concealed in the wooden base are USB and AC plug-ins to keep the whole product tangle-free and stylish on the window ledge.

The device has no planned mass release and is instead hoping for 400 presales at $370 a pop to turn the prototype into a reality.
