3-D Printed Solar Tree

Researchers at the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland have developed energy harvesting trees. The leaves of these trees which store and generate energy have been 3-D printed using well established mass production techniques. The amazing thing about this technology is that it works indoors and outdoors and can also harvest kinetic energy from wind and temperature changes in the surrounding environment.
