These special shotgun shells take the green revolution to the next level. If planting stuff the traditional way is too boring for you, then you might want to shoot up gardens instead with Flower Shells as your ammo.
I’ve seen some offbeat projects turn up on Kickstarter over the years, but a project that’s there now called Glowing Plants is one of the strangest. You can probably figure out what the project is about simply from the name.
There are some people who are just don’t know how to take care of plants. Or it might be that you’ve got some special plants in your house that need special care. It’s for reasons like that some designers decided to come up with this device, which allows you to detect the health of your plants.
I’m not a big fan of growing stuff, mostly because I kill pretty much everything I’ve ever plant. I always water them too much or too little and eventually my plants turn dead and dry or bloated and moldy.
While they might have different upholstery, most sofas and couches look pretty similar. From time to time, though, you come across something very different. This cactus couch is definitely unusual, because cacti usually don’t make good sitting places.
I recently had the opportunity to take a tour of Ford’s modern truck assembly plant in Dearborn, MI. While the plant’s robotics and just-in-time manufacturing facility are truly impressive, one of the things I had no idea about was that the factory is also home to the world’s largest living roof.

Some people have green thumbs while others are known for their plant-killing black thumbs.

Like to eat and drink, then use your computer keyboard without washing your hands? Eventually, you end up with a sticky, dirty mess of a keyboard. Apparently, one office worker was sick and tired of seeing the grimy keyboard in their co-worker’s office, and did something about it.
Everything is interactive these days. But plants? Japanese researchers are working on that one. Researchers at Keio University aim to create interactive plants. Interactive plants, like puppets, are designed to react to and convey emotions. Now if some interactive zombies show up, we can have Plants vs.
I read a lot about the “Green Revolution” over the last weekend, since it was one of the topics covered in my school Finals. You’d think that something with that name would have something to do with saving the environment, right?
While many mobile gamers have probably moved on from Plants vs. Zombies by now, I’m still not finished with the most painfully difficult mini-games yet, so it’s still in heavy rotation on my iPad. Somebody else is still enjoying their PvZ too, as is evidenced by this excellent birthday cake, inspired by the game.
I have seen a lot of art in my time and much of it isn’t that impressive to me. I have seen people use just about everything to make their art. I have never seen anyone use leaves from various trees to make their artworks.
This robotic plant can go on walkabout whenever it pleases. It was created by the Mexican artist Gilberto Esparza, who specializes in thought-provoking robot creations, as well as mechanical sculptures.
