The Genica E-Plant. The world’s first digital flora? OK, so it’s a bean plant that sprouts with a binary or @ symbol, but hey, that might be just enough to sway it with your favourite geek partner, eh? And it’s only $3.99. 90 day warranty and sprouts in 1 to 2 weeks.
With the Genica e-plant you get a bean vine (phaseolus lunatus – we think) that sprouts with binary “01001011” and “@” on it’s young, tender e-plant leaves (sorry, they fall off later). Simply add a bit of dihydrogen monoxide (H2O – aka: water), some Universal Solar Beams (USB – aka: sunlight) and a bit of computer lovin’ care and you’ll get your very own e-plant!
