solar power plant / Jryuan Chang

solar power plant
solar power plant

The concept of this design comes from the photosynthesis of plants. The electricity is generated in two ways, solar power and H2O battery. When sunny days, the electricity is generated by the solar power chips on the flower pedals and stored into the lithium battery. The electricity power is supplied through USB sockets for certain hand held devices, like cellphones, PDAs, etc. When the power is low in cloudy days it will alarm off the owner to water the plant to generate electricity by H2O battery. Through interactions between the plant and the user, the user can therefore enjoy the fun of looking after a plant.
