Plant Phone Charger

Plants are pretty great. They increase productivity, we've grown them on the International Space Station, and they look adorable in cute pots. But let's kick that up a notch - what if we could charge our phones just by caring for a pot plant? Turns out, that's now a reality. 

Just a heads-up though, if you kill the plant, it probably won't charge anything, so don't forget to water it!
