The Bioo team claims to have developed “the world’s first plant pot that charges your phone with electricity from plants’ photosynthesis.”
Look at these numbers:
Allows 2 to 3 phone charges per day. Power: 3.5v, 0.5A. Night and day electrical production, 21x11x11 cm size, 99€!
Another size 1x1m: 3 to 40 Watt generation.
Now they have gone for crowdfunding (now 118% of 15.000€). They are also funded by one of the largest Spanish enterprise, Repsol (oil company). This make me thing it is not a joke or scam.
They say with a 10x10m backyard grass they could support a whole house, about 5.000€ (four orbos?). They use bacteria.
