Looking to add some solar-powered [2] flare to your boring backyard? This gigantic energy-generating flower sculpture [3] by id&@le concepts may be just the ticket. Dubbed the Gul Two [4], the brightly-hued blossom is outfitted with an array of six 10 x 5 cm solar panels that soak up sunlight throughout the day and store it in a hidden 4-watt battery. Once night falls, the kinetic sculpture erupts in a brilliant LED display that lights up the night with shades of sapphire, emerald, ruby, violet, indigo, and opal.
