The Plantbook Laptop Fuels Up on Natural Resources

Computers are notorious for being electricity eaters, but the Plantbook Laptop concept aims to change that. This utterly irresistible design bridges the gap between artificial and organic matter in a way that few could ever have dreamed of.

Believe it or not, this cutting-edge notebook feeds on the food of trees. When the power is low, the long tubular battery can literally be placed in a glass of water, drinking in the H2O and experiencing a sort of photosynthesis. Like a leaf, the fuel cell soaks up the sun's rays through integrated solar panels, harnessing this energy to generate electrolysis with the clear liquid and discharging oxygen. Ingeniously conceived by Hyerim Kim and Seunggi Baek, the Plantbook Laptop actually improves its surrounding environment.
