The Timeless Garden by Francesco Castiglione and Tommaso Ceschi is a clock that runs on mud. To be precise, compounds in the mud react electrochemically with metal terminals in a recycled plastic container used to house the mud and grow small plants such as herbs and grass. The Timeless Garden therefore eliminates the need for a wall plug or batteries.
Frankly it seems like a lot of work in order to get an eco-friendly clock even if the indoor plant produces oxygen and absorbs CO2. But at the very least, you'll know when it's time to water your plant.
