This is one of those future concepts common to academic creative exercise, but nevertheless notable for it's merging of nature and technology for the home. The plant pot renders were designed by Young Sang Eunm which use an electronic monitoring system to displays the age of the plant with an LED display, mimicking the annual rings of tree growth as an indicator of the age. Very useful for those of us serious about keeping household plants (and we know quite a few serious indoor gardeners who'd love this)...
Alas, like many pie in the sky ideas, there's no details of how this system would work on Young Sang Eun's
portfolio site, but we're hoping the concept sees life in the near future.
