The Garden Clock


A clock powered by a chemical reaction between mud and metal. Grow a plant, tell the time.

And yes, it's only a concept, so you've got a while to think about whether you want one and what plant you would use to power your clock.

    Neat! Reminds me of the potato clock that kids make for science fair projects.

    Just think of what else we could power – street lights lit by street trees in giant containers, ovens operating by the collective power of a potted herb garden, computers supplied by plants in your office…

    I so want one! Now! I am awash with consumer lust!

  3. Interesting! Hopefully they’ll make it to market. Just found your blog – looking forward to a good read.

    Does this add a new meaning to sitting around, watching the grass grow???

    Hmm..what I’d really like is to only need to be able to tell the time with the sky and NOT be on such a schedule.

    Can we do that instead?
