Charging gadgets like cellphones and digital cameras may soon leave no carbon footprint at all, thanks to designs like the Leaf wireless charger. The Leaf wireless charger is a solar-powered gadget charger that uses the sun's rays to charge everything from smartphones to PSPs.

Joel Kim is the future-forward designer behind the Leaf wireless charger. The Leaf is simple to use, requiring only seven hours of sunlight to become fully charged. The Leaf can charge two gadgets at a time, one on top and one connected via USB cable. The Leaf can also be charged via USB port, ensuring its usefulness even on cloudy days.
