Best plant ever.

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!
