The Nissan Solar Tree officially has me excited about the prospect of mass solar power for cities. This concept device would be about 12 meters tall and have three "branches" designed to capture the sun's rays.

While its design is nothing new, this Nissan Solar Tree is truly magnificent due to the individuals behind the project. Most solar tree designs come from industrial designers looking to strike it big and save the earth. The Nissan Solar Tree however, is backed by one of the world's biggest and wealthiest car companies. If anyone can turn a solar tree into a reality, it's Nissan.
