(KING) Amazon has unveiled their new "Spheres" to the public.
The tech giant's urban Seattle oasis features 40,000 plants from 30 countries crossing 400 species, including a showstopper 50-foot fig tree in the middle. The Spheres also feature more than a dozen plants that are extinct in the wild or are part of ongoing conservation efforts.
