The Sunshine Solar Charger Looks Like a Bunch of Flowers

The Sunshine Solar Charger is inspired by nature on a couple of levels. First of all, it looks like a bunch of flowers. Secondly, it harnesses the power of the sun by generating solar energy just like the plants it takes the form of. Of course, this photosynthesis is far from natural, as the Apple product-like look already suggests.

Created by XD Design, a Dutch company, the Sunshine Solar Charger gives similar docks a refreshing update. As though encouraging users to smell the roses, its five charging panels serves more than a practical purpose. Appropriately, the Sunshine Solar Charger is made up of 45% bio-based material derived from plants. Thus, it emits 35% less CO2 emissions compared to similar products made out of plastic.
