MudWatt – check out these tiny “pets” that run a clock

We’re getting a lot of fun eco ways to power our devices, mostly by using the sun but this one uses something a little bit different. The MudWatt is the battery that runs on mud.

Like, wet dirt, mud. No earthworms needed. It’s a little misleading because it’s not the mud that makes it happen. It’s the bacteria that lives in the mud that creates the energy that runs the little clock, which, by the way, is all it runs.

This is a science kit or a bio-energy pet that shows off a different, more echo friendly way to harness energy. You can experiment by adding different things from your fridge to see how your invisible, energy producing pets react to it. It works with an app so that you can track how well they like or don’t like what you’re feeding them. There are various levels but the classic MudWatt is $57.52.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
