Worried about your alarm clock failing you during a power outage? Forget electricity and harness the power of dirt.
"The Timeless Garden is a simple, slender plant pot for catgrass or other low-maintenance botanicals, with a faceplate that displays the time. The clock is powered by a chemical reaction between the soil inside the pot and the metal wires connected to the digital display."
How cool is that? Although I guess you have to actually take care of a plant for it to work. My not-so-green thumb and I had better stick to the alarm on my cell phone.
