Mud powered clock

As many of you know my passion for domesticity and geekiness is rivaled only by my passion for eco friendly technology and the environment. Well today I found something that combines all 3 of my passions into one amazing product.

Timeless Garden by Francesco Castiglione Morelli & Tommaso Ceschi

This clock uses the mud to react electrochemically with metal terminals in a recycled plastic container and powers the clock while you grow grass or herbs on top.

Sadly there seems to be no release date or price on this product yet, but as soon as it hits the shelves I would love to get my paws on one.
