Vivien Muller’s Photonsynthese is a gadget charger with style! The branches of this bonsai tree shaped charger carry 54 tiny photovoltaic panels to store energy accumulated in a battery during the day. 

Small devices like cell phones and cameras can then be charged up by plugging in underneath the electronic bonsai tree. The wires are largely hidden which should please neatniks.

The clever design goes one step further. The charger is modular with each piece equipped with a 3.5 jack connector. The modules come in different sizes thus allowing the user to customize the shape of the tree.
