Clock Working on Soil

Marieke Staps presents Soil Clock that works on soil and water as you might have guessed from its name. A Dutch designer used the energy of natural metabolism that occurs each moment in a live organism for producingelectric power. Brilliant, isn’t it? The only thing you have to care about is adding a little bit of water to soil from time to time.

Small wires made of zinc and copper connect the clock with moisture soil. These metals are used in a regular electric wire. So, they interact with the natural electrolytes contained in the soil minerals. Of course, this doesn’t produce much energy but it is still enough to keep small clocking working. The rest of the Soil Clock looks pretty much like any other casual clock.
