Wouldn’t it be nice if dark streets were illuminated by these beautiful,  photosynthetic leaves? That’s the concept behind Jongoh Lee’s  “invisible streetlight.” The flexible body of the solar-powered light is  designed to directly wrap around a tree branch with no support  required, seamlessly blending into the surrounding environment. The  leaves store the sun’s energy throughout the day and then bursts with  light when darkness arrives. Perfect for parks and other tree-lined  spaces, the invisible streetlight provides an energy-saving solution  without breaking up the experience of the outdoors.

"Tree of life", Tsavo national park, Kenya. This acacia is a symbol of  life in the vast expanses of thorny savanna, where wild animals come to  take advantage of its leaves or its shade. Tsavo National Park in  southeastern Kenya, crossed by the Nairobi-Mombasa road and railway  axis, is the country’s largest protected area (8,200 square miles, or  21,000 square kilometers) and was declared a national park in 1948.
