Use Technology To Get Back To Nature

It’s like a 4D iPhone game! And describing it thusly may have just killed a small part of me. Designer Samuel Wilkinson has created a plant biome you control without ever having to get your hands dirty.

Sunlight, water levels, nutrients and climate control are all within your power to command either on your phone or tablet.

According to Wilkinson, “The idea promotes ‘digital downtime’ by finding an alternative use for smartphones and encouraging their owners to consider a slower life. the control and nurturing of a real mini eco-system takes patience and care, contrasting with the immediacy of messaging or tweeting that is so characteristic of the smartphone generation.”

Honestly? I can’t tell if this is amazing or terrifying.
