Looking to add some solar-powered flare to your boring backyard? This gigantic energy-generating flower sculpture by id&@le concepts may be just the ticket. Dubbed the Gul Two, 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.
