These eTrees in France use solar panels to generate electricity.
Have you ever realized your phone was about to die and wished you could plug it into a nearby tree? No? Well, you have no imagination. Because such a tree exists, and it's in France.
Israeli company Sol-logic invented a solar powered "eTree." The tree's panels, which resemble branches, collect energy from the sun and turn it into power, which people can use to charge their phones. But that's just the beginning. To see all the other neat things these trees can do, watch this video below.
