Timeless Garden, Digital Clock that doesn’t need batteries.

Posted on: February 12, 2009

Timeless GardenAn interesting concept “The Timeless Garden” designed by Francesco Castiglione Morelli & Tommaso Ceschi relies on the chemical reaction between mud and metal to power its built in digital clock. I for one have wanted to see more products like this come to light. As well thought out engineering and design should be used in ways to be less reliant on other sources of grid based power. Not all products of coarse will be able to be self sufficient, but we need to strive toward reaching that goal. Do you remember that experiment in science class of building a battery from potatoes? Well this concept is really not that much different. This I believe is still in the conceptual stages because there is no indication whether or not this product is in production. Not only is this device self powering, it also helps absorb CO2 from the air to create oxygen (like all plants do).
