Introduction: Blue RoboPlanter (made From a Clock)

Picture of Blue RoboPlanter (made From a Clock)

An aunt gave me a damaged blue alarm clock. So I dismantle it, and using an industrial plastic piece I found on the street and some iron pieces and springs, I made this little junkbot planter.

(Guess where is the water excess exit ;-)

These are great and have such character to them! You should make a video game based on finding the parts in the street or in broken machines and building a team of eco-friendly recycling bots!

Well, exactly I don't know. I just bought it because it fits in my planter ;-)
