Wouldn’t it be cool if you could recharge your Android phone with water? Powertrekk by myFC is a new fuel cell charger that does just that. This innovate charging system uses Powerpukks that contain sodium silicide which produce hydrogen gas when combined with any kind of water.

“PowerTrekk Water Charger gives your mobile phone power anywhere at any time”, says Björn Westerholm, CEO at myFC. “From now on, you do not have to rely on having an electricity grid nearby.”

If you’ve ignored the naysayers, saved enough money, and splashed out on an electric car, you’re probably now looking for a dedicated home-charging station. If that’s the case, look no further–architect Giancarlo Zema has teamed up with Luminexence to design a bonkers yet beautiful leaf-shaped example known as the Lotus.

The Lotus–no relation to Norwich’s premier manufacturer of mid-life-crisis mobiles–is a giant solar-powered piece of faux flora that delivers pure, carbon-neutral electricity captured from the sun. It comes with nighttime lights plus an optional information screen, seat and car charging port.
