Grass Patch That Tells The Time

It’s always an educational experience to see what’s in store for us as far eco-friendly products go. Joining the green brigade is this Timeless Garden that looks at bringing in a green patch and clock to match your décor. Using the chemistry between mud and metal, the clock sustains itself, without craving additional toxic juices. The frame is a hitch between by two recycled plastic bodies fashioned as a pot/clock.

Indoor plant with a self-sustaining digital clock….hmmm…I’m just wondering what will be the outcome if I happen to over-water the plant. Guess that will ruin my go-green aspirations!

Designers: Francesco Castiglione Morelli & Tommaso Ceschi

    If someone needs another clock in the house, I guess… I too am concerned about water drainage. Water can get through anything, especially a seem in the joined molded halves.

      They can be ultrasonically welded to create a water tight seal. Although, to be honest, I wish people would consider alternatives to their parting lines. This could be cored from the bottom with a side action to form the front face. I also wish the clock was bigger. In any event, it’s a cute design. Reminds me of this potato clock I built in elementary school: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufoOJfzro2c

    how many more people feel the need to make something that involves a clock, and a plant…..

  • I like it; I think it’s quite cute, and the green ‘pulse’ is quite a nice touch 🙂

    how long can something like this run?

    and what happens if, like me, you dont have a green thumb?

    Why does grass of all things come across as green? it’s not, the lawn is the biggest water-consumer in America, so selling a product as “green” because it has a lawn is silly. if anyone gets this, plant something in it, like herbs.

    Cliché hardly describes it.

  • Keith says:

    How exactly does the mud create electricity?

    • Eric says:

      Ask a potato, they do.
      I think it has to do with alkalinity in the water.

    • claire says:

      its the organisms in the mud that create a chemical reaction which, in turn, creates a tiny charge that is enough for the clock to run off.
      personally, i think its a great idea! cute and eco. i dont know what you’d do if you overwatered it accidentally, haha, but my only question is where can i get one?!
