I don’t know about you but I really hate mowing the lawn. I’d rather be inside in the air conditioning, relaxing. Well, it looks like iRobot has finally unveiled a robot for lawn mowing that is like the Roomba you use inside your home.
A bed of roses is overkill. Now a bed of grass well, that’s something else. You’ve probably already lain in one already, if you had the kind of childhood where plopping down on the grass and gazing up at the sky (and making out shapes from the puffy white clouds) was a regular occurrence.
Do your pens go missing every once in a while, even though you’re sure you left them at your desk? Pen thieves are everywhere, especially at the office, so if you don’t take care and keep your stuff when they’re not in use, then chances are they’ll go missing once you leave your desk or cubicle.

We’ve already seen a furry iPhone 5 case. But if you love plants more than Wookies, a Japanese company called Ag Ltd. has something for you. They’re making what they call the World Parks series, which are iPhone 5 cases that are modeled after grassy parks.

When a car goes out of commission, it’s usually sent over to a junkyard. That’s a huge chunk of solid waste that requires a lot of energy before it can be recycled. A possible solution? Biodegradable cars.
We’ve seen some strange computer mice over the years, and here’s a new one to add to the pile of unusual mousing devices. This one is covered with grass.
Created by Japanese artist Hanaoka, the Siva mouse is part of a series of grass-covered objects he’s produced for the world to enjoy.
If you can manage to keep potted plants alive, they might as well be in Tetris planters. Really, what else are you going to put them in? This gorgeous project is classy and cool.
Hmm. Better with or without the grass?
