Ripe Radish garden light concept looks like a power up

Posted in Concepts by Shane McGlaun on April 15th, 2010

As a gamer, I know that a glowing vegetable is a good thing. I mean, this is the sort of game goody that does stuff like make you fly or turn into a giant. In the real world, glowing vegetables aren’t common.

A design concept called Ripe Radish makes a glowing vegetable common though. The red glowing portion is a garden light that you stick into the ground. The green plant out the top is a plant just as you expect.

The Timelapse Garden video cameraHere’s a cool video camera from Hammacher Schlemmer, specifically designed to create a timelapse video of your garden so that you can keep track of your garden’s progress. Pretty neat. You could make your own Discovery Channel type movie.

It features two different capture modes: as close as 20-inches or a 54-inch wide field of view with the capability to take a picture at one of six preset intervals. Anything from every 5 seconds to every 24 hours and it combines them into a single 1280 x 1024 resolution AVI movie file. Nice.


Robotic gardeners tend tomato plants

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on March 11th, 2009

Robotic gardeners tend tomato plantsRobot gardeners? Students and researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have developed robots that actually tend to tomato plants, with no human intervention. The plants have soil sensors and can network with the robots, which is a great way of letting them know when they need water or nutrients. The robots are equipped with watering pumps and robotic arms that are gentle enough to pick cherry tomatoes without bruising them.

And so we enslave the plant kingdom with their new robot overlords. It’s a great way to see how it works out with plants first. If you start seeing a bunch of squished tomatoes, plants blackened and burnt, and greenhouses that look like a hurricane hit them, than we will know what they have in store for us.

Timeless Garden lets you grow grass, tell time

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2009

Timeless Garden lets you grow grass, tell timeWhy you would want to grow grass indoors just to have a clock, is anybody’s guess. Especially since almost every device these days has a clock. Who knows, maybe you just really love weeds indoors. If so, the Timeless Garden may be for you.

It’s powered by the chemistry between mud and metal, so that toxic batteries aren’t required. They describe it as “an indoor plant with a self-sustaining digital clock”.

EasyBloom Plant Sensor is a garden know-it-all

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2009

EasyBloom Plant Sensor is a garden know-it-allThis is a great device if your thumb is brown rather than green. Consider it a cheat for becoming a great gardener. The EasyBloom Plant Sensor consists of two gadgets, a USB-enabled processor, and the sensor it plugs into that you also will stick into your soil. The sensor will clue you in on what your garden requires, telling you things like how much sun that area is getting as well as moisture, humidity etc.

After it collects 24 hours of data and chastises you about being a plant killer, plug it into your computer and it will give you valuable info what sorts of plants will thrive in your garden. You can search by color, height and other options. It’s at this point that you realize that the device is little more than a digital book of flowers that do well in your area, but it could still help those who kill plants just by looking at them.

LED hose nozzle for night gardening

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on December 26th, 2008

LED hose nozzle for night gardeningIt’s better to water your plants in the evening, when the sun isn’t beating down on them. That way the water doesn’t evaporate right away and the ground can soak up as much as it needs. So that means you need to garden in the dark, but how are you supposed to see what’s going on?

With an LED garden hose of course. This garden hose nozzle has a light on it, so you can see exactly where you’re spraying. It doubles as a defensive weapon as well, should you see an intruder among your plants and vegetables. You’ll be able to see them run away when you spray them.

JVC’s Sound Garden concept is a modular speaker systemJVC’s Sound Garden concept blends tree-hugging with design. It’s a full hi-fi speaker system with bass-reflex ports and little pot areas for your plants. (Which don’t have that much room.) And it’s all made of some wonder material called “eco-plastic”. If you want, you can connect a whole bunch together for massive sound and massive plant life. Just a concept right now, but rest assured they are working on more music/plant tech as I type this.

Plantarium Vial Garden: plants are gellin’

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on December 26th, 2007

Plantarium Vial Garden

These glass tubes contain a nutritive and non-toxic space age gel made by NASA scientists that allows seeds to be grown inside of tubes. A very essential thing to be able to do when in space. You can easily imagine one plant turning to another saying, “Are you gellin’?”, “Yeah, I’m gellin like Magellan.”

Bad gel and commercial jokes aside, this is pretty neat. The gel is transparent, so you can also see the plant growing below the surface and have a look at it’s roots. The tubes are 7 inches tall and you can get 5 different varieties like basil, melon, marigold, pepper, sunflower or tomato. This is cool for adults and is bound to teach kids something about plants as well. Each plantarium vial garden costs $9.95.

GameBoy resurrected from the dead, with the power of the sun

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2011

When is a dead Gameboy not a dead Gameboy? When this guy gets hold of it. Andrew had a damaged GameBoy and much like Dr, Frankenstein, he didn’t just give up. He laid his monster on a table one dark and stormy night, opened a solar powered garden lamp and used the photovoltaic cells on the GameBoy.

The storm subsided and the clouds parted. This was followed by shouts of “It’s alive!” The GameBoy now soaks up the sun’s rays and stays on forever, without running out of energy, as long as the sun shines. It uses two AA rechargeable batteries that store all the energy it gets from the sun.
