Most of us are used to sticking our plugs into electrical outlets, but what if we could use household plants as an alternative power source? Biophotovoltaics believes that this idea is well within our reach and created an innovative concept called the Moss Table. Energy is created through the process of photosynthesis, where electrons are captured through conductive fibers, and chemical energy is converted into electrical energy.
What’s even more impressive is that the moss table can already produce enough electricity to power smaller devices. Scientists predict that future Bio-Photo-Voltaic (BPV) technology will soon be able to power larger ones.
