 Designer Adam Mikloski has come up with a beautiful design for solar powered street lights in India. Mimicking the structure of a seedling and the shape of mango leaves, the concept design captures not just sunlight but also rain to power the lamps.

The tops of the leaves have solar cells for sunny days. Meanwhile when it rains, the shape of the "leaves" funnels water to a drain into the post, where a water turbine can gather energy from the moving water.
